Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Prime Minister):
My hon. friend the leader of the opposition (Mr. Bennett) asked yesterday for correspondence in relation to the transfer of their natural resources to the western provinces. I 'beg to lay on the table the papers referring to the transfer of the natural resources of the province of Manitoba; also a copy of the correspondence relating to the transfer of the natural resources of the province of Saskatchewan, and a copy of the correspondence with respect to the transfer of the natural resources of the province of Alberta. I would like to say to my hon. friend, with respect to the correspondence between our government and the Alberta government, that there are two or three telegrams which were personal and confidential. I will send them to my hon. friend, and if, after reading them, he thinks that it would serve any useful purpose to have them made public at this time, the government will have no objection; but I think he may feel that they should be kept private for the present.
