That certainly was the
impression we had on this side of the House and I had heard nothing to the contrary until the hon. gentleman rose to his feet. Of course, it means that if it is to proceed now the arrangement which was made falls to the ground. That is a bad thing for this one arrangement but it is a much worse thing for the possibility of arrangements in the future. I should like to invite my right
hon. friend's attention to what was the understanding on this side and see what can be done about it.
