Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. STEVENS:

I had the courtesy of a

conversation with officers of the Customs Department, and they point out certain impossibilities in this question. I have a change to suggest, and then, with the permission of the House, I wish to ask that it pass as an order for return. I would suggest that the word "imported" in the first line should be changed to "brought;" that in the last question, after the word "revenue," the words "or security" be inserted and that after the word "refund," the words "or release" be inserted. With these changes, if the question could pass as an order for return, I have no doubt it could be dealt with.

TREATY OF PEACE WITH TURKEY

STATEMENT IN EXPLANATION BY THE PRIME MINISTER


On the Orders of the Day:


LIB

William Lyon Mackenzie King (Prime Minister; President of the Privy Council; Secretary of State for External Affairs)

Liberal

Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING:

(Prime Minister): Yesterday my right hon. friend the leader of the opposition (Mr. Meighen) asked me, in the course of the remarks I made on the subject of the Treaty of Peace with Turkey, whether there was a reply to a despatch I had referred to, of December 31, 1922. I answered that there was not. I regret to say that I was mistaken in that regard; the fact that there was such a reply escaped my attention in looking over the files I had before me. That reply was to the effect that the British government acquiesced in the view that the plenipotentiaries who negotiated the treaty should be the parties to sign it. I will see that the despatch is submitted to my right hon. friend with the other papers.

Hon. J. A. ROBB (Acting Minister of Finance):

May I remind my hon. friend,

who himself had more than once the re-

sponsibility of bringing down the budget, that the financial year has only ended this week, and he knows that the officers of the department should have at least a little time to check up accounts.

I am not complaining; I merely want to know. I see that the newspaper reports say that it may be brought down any time.
