Richard Bedford Bennett (Prime Minister; Minister of Finance and Receiver General; President of the Privy Council; Secretary of State for External Affairs)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. BENNETT:

With respect to the
Unemployment Relief Act of 1930, the statute itself requires us to lay on the table within fifteen days of the opening of the house a record of the whole administration of the act, and of course that will be done. That record is in course of 'preparation. Whether or not it can be completed between now and Monday or Tuesday I am sure my right hon. friend knows it would be impossible for me to say. But next week in any event we propose to have the record completed and placed on the table of the house.
On motion of Mr. Bennett the house adjourned at 3.35 p.m.
Monday, March 16, 1931

Hon. PETER HEENAN (Kenora-Rainy River) moved for leave to introduce Bill No. 2, to amend the Representation Act.
