Mr. J. H. BLACKMORE (Lethbridge):
I desire to ask three questions of the Minister of Finance. I have not given him notice of these, so perhaps they will have to remain as notices of motion.
1. Has the minister investigated to find out how many acres of beet contracts the Canada and Dominion Sugar Company had signed up by the close of May 1?
2. Will the minister investigate before Monday, May 5, at three o'clock and report to the house on Monday afternoon?
