Mr. GORDON:

It is the well established practice, Mr. Speaker, that the intentions of the government in matters of this kind are not disclosed until the proper time. I assume the hon. member has reference to the article in the treaty of Versailles relating to the international labour office. Therefore I would ask that this question be dropped from the order paper.

Question dropped.
