1530 HOUSE OF
Inquiries of the Ministry genial friend the Minister of Finance refused to table this document. The other day I voted reluctantly against the request of the hon. member for Lake Centre (Mr. Diefen-baker) for the production and tabling of certain orders in council. They were not historical documents then, but a few days afterwards they became historical documents and were tabled in the house. If it only took a matter of days to table the papers asked for by the hon. member for Lake Centre, I do not see why many years are not enough to make other papers of historical value.
