Mr. MACKENZIE KING:
Notwithstanding my hon. friend's eloquence he has not answered the question. He tells us that his motion had a wider range of slaughter in view than the killing of the item itself; he admits that the intention was to kill the committee. I ask him again, however, the simple question I put to him before: was it his intention to kill the item? Now, I may say, I was in the House at the time my hon. friend was speaking, and he was requesting the Minister of Customs not to press the item at that particular moment.
