Mr. McINTOSH:

The report is concerned with the motion, the proposed resolution, of the hon. member for Southeast Grey (Miss Macphail) as to the desirability of spending one dollar in the promotion of international peace for every one hundred dollars spent in the promotion of war. The committee subjected that resolution to a full analysis, took evidence from Doctor Skelton, Under-Secretary of State for External Affairs; Professor Mackenzie, of Toronto university; Dean Corbett, of McGill university; Mr. Graham Spry, secretary of the Associated Canadian Clubs; and a submission by Doctor Tory, and came to the conclusions set out in the report, first, that the evidence not being as full and complete as might be wished the resolution should be considered at another session of parliament. Secondly, with regard to the contents of the resolution, the feeling of the committee was that the Department of External Affairs, manned at the present time by the Prime Minister of Canada and Doctor Skelton, was doing splendid work in the promotion of peace at home and abroad, and that the machinery and facilities of that department in the way of international peace should be extended and increased. By so doing it was further felt that parliament might see its way clear to increase its grant to the League of Nations Society in Canada. The grant now I believe is S3,000 per annum. The committee felt that that grant should be increased if the League of Nations Society was to do its best work throughout the Dominion in the promotion of international peace in the schools of this country, primary and secondary, and also in the universities of the Dominion.

2419-154J

Another idea mooted before the committee was that it might- be well for parliament to consider the advisability of the establishment of an international library linked up with the Department of External Affaire. If that were done the committee thought that in due time it might be possible to organize a summer school on international relations for Canada with Ottawa as the headquarters.

I believe, Mr. Speaker, those are the main points dealt with in the report, and I now leave it for the house to endorse..
