Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Prime Minister):
I beg to lay on the table
correspondence between the governments of Canada and the United States in 1927-28 with respect to the St. Lawrence waterway project; the report of the international advisory committee, dated January, 1928, and observations thereupon by certain of its members, and orders in council referring to the Supreme Court of Canada certain questions as to water-power rights of the Dominion and the provinces. I must express to my hon. friend opposite (Mr. Bennett), and to the house, my regret that owing to the early adjournment last evening I was not in a position to table these papers as I had hoped to do. I fully expected to be present to table the documents, but the adjournment took place earlier than was anticipated. I wish to move, seconded by Mr. Robb:
That 2,500 copies in English and 1,500 copies in French of the St. Lawrence waterway project papers now tabled be printed forthwith, and that standing order 64 be suspended in relation thereto.
St. Lawrence Waterway
