BUSINESS OF THE HOUSE

SATURDAY SITTINGS


Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Prime Minister) moved: That on Saturday, April 9th instant, and every Saturday thereafter until the end of the session, the House shall sit from 11 o'clock in the morning until 6 o'clock in the afternoon, and that there shall be an intermission from one to three o'clock, and the order of business and procedure shall be the same as on Fridays. to the hon. member for St. Denis, I wish to state that representations have been made to the government in the nature of this letter. It is the intention of the government to grant an increase to all civil servants, however we must equally take under consideration the amounts which have already been granted to certain classes since 1924 as I have already explained to the House. At all events, this question is receiving our earnest consideration and may be discussed more fully when the supplementary estimates covering this increase is submitted to the House.

Mr. J. S. WOODSWORTH (Winnipeg North Centre):

I desire to ask the Prime

Minister if the Canadian government has been consulted about the recently announced policy of Great Britain in China, and further, does the Canadian government endorse the policy of the present British administration?

Right Hon, W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Prime Minister): With respect to the situation in China and the communications that have parsed* between the Canadian government and the British government on the subject, I would say that this government has been kept informed by the British government of the progress of events. The information which we have received has been very much that which has appeared in the public press. We have not been asked for our advice, and we have not tendered any.
