Mr. T. S. SPROULE (East Grey).
Mr. Speaker, before the Orders of the Day are called, I desire to ask a question with regard to the correspondence which took place on the subject of the inter-imperial conference. I am informed that the question was put to the right hon. the Premier (Rt. Hon. Sir Wilfrid Laurier) a few days ago whether he would endeavour to have this correspondence laid on the Table at an early day, and he replied that he hoped to be able to lay it on the Table in a few days. Might I ask, in the absence of the leader of the opposition (Mr. Borden, Halifax), if the Prime Minister has any further information to give us on the subject ?
