Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Leader of the Opposition):
Mr. Speaker, as we do not reach the orders of the day until late in the day, if at all to-day, there is a matter which I would like to mention to the Prime Minister on the order for motions which is of importance at the moment, and which may not have occurred to him.
There appears to be an obvious necessity for the voting of money for unemployment relief, and particularly for supplying seed grain and other forms of farm relief to those who are in need in the west. What I wish to say to my right hon. friend is that if he will bring into the house a supply bill asking for the amount that he may regard as necessary and wish to have for this month, so far as the opposition is concerned we will be prepared to do what we can to facilitate its passage rapidly through the house. We recognize that it is a week since the Unemployment and Farm Relief Act lapsed and that my right hon. friend will certainly be coming to parliament for some moneys, for this purpose. If a supply bill is brought in at any time to provide what may be necessary for the balance of this present fiscal year, so far as the opposition is concerned we shall be prepared to agree to any suspension of the rules which will allow the bill to go through this house with as little in the way of criticism or delay as possible.
