REGULATION OF LIQUOR TRAFFIC

PAPERS RELATING TO CONVENTION BETWEEN UNITED KINGDOM AND UNITED STATES


On the orders of the day:


CON

Charles Hazlitt Cahan

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. C. H. CAHAN (St. Lawrence-St. George):

I would like to ask the Prime Minister whether or not certain documents might be laid on the table of the house with respect to the convention between the United Kingdom and the United States of America in regard to the regulation of the liquor traffic, which convention was signed at Washington on January 23, 1924, and ratified on May 22 of that year. I have seen published in the press what purported to be copies of official correspondence which took place between the government of Great Britain and the government of the United States during the two years prior to the signing of that treaty, and I would like to ask that the official correspondence which took place just prior to and during the negotiation of the treaty be laid on the table of the house in order that we may have authentic copies before us.

Then I understand from the public press, although not of recent date, that that draft convention was presented to the Imperial

conference at London, where it received consideration and I understand certain proceedings took place with regard to it, together with certain official correspondence between the government of Great Britain and the government of this country before the treaty was actually signed. If there is such correspondence which in the public interest could be produced I should like to have it laid on the table in order that we may know exactly under what conditions Canada gave adherence to that treaty.
