The hon. gentleman's observations have not added anything thus far to this discussion. The reason he is there and I am here is perhaps apparent from that, if that is what he is asking for.
Just let me proceed a step further. It is easy to criticize the observations of public men as reported in the press in that way when such observations may be said to be but a passing joke. I happen to know the Sackville-West incident very thoroughly, and it just crossed my mind from a criticism I had been reading of the high commissioner. He had been joking with me because of something that had transpired, and he said he might be back here with his carpet bag or his valise, or something of that sort, and I said, "Do not forget Sackville-West." That is all that was said, and that was the basis of that remark.
