Mr. MACKENZIE KING:

I mentioned, in answer to the hon. gentleman who asked the question, that that motion would be taken up at a later time, but the Government would like to fix its own time for it. I wish also to mention to my hon. friend- and I mention it now so that hon. members will know

that on Tuesday we will go on with the estimates on naval service and continue with the militia estimates.
