Hon. J. C. ELLIOTT (Postmaster General):
Before the orders of the day are called I should like to answer the questions asked yesterday by the hon. member for Wentworth (Mr. Lennard) and the hon. member for Lincoln (Mr. Lockhart) with regard to mail delivery on Good Friday. I might remind my hon. friends that when the supplementary estimates were being considered on Wednesday evening the question was asked as to whether or not there would be a delivery on Good Friday. I indicated that the regular delivery would take place on that day. On Thursday I learned that through some misunderstanding directions had been given for only the morning delivery, and I had instructions issued that the regular delivery should take place on Good Friday.
