Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Prime Minister):
I wish to reply to another question relating to international affairs asked yesterday by the hon. member for St. Law-rence-St. George (Mr. Cahan), in respect to the ratification of the Canada-France convention. Following approval by the Canadian parliament, the convention concerning the rights of nationals and commercial and shipping matters between Canada and France was ratified by the king in respect of Canada on June 30, 1933. No steps have yet been taken to arrange for the exchange of ratifications under article 21 of the convention, as ratification has not yet been effected by the appropriate authorities of the French republic. A Senate committee last week made a report favouring ratification of this convention.
VIMY PILGRIMAGE On the orders of the day:
