Mr. MACKENZIE KING: (Prime Minister; Secretary of State for External Affairs; President of the Privy Council)

Liberal

1. The hon. member apparently refers to a statement which the government of the United States communicated to the press of that country on January 28th. A copy of the statement is being tabled.

2. The procedure at present adopted by the United States government in connection with current trade agreements is based upon the fact that arrangements concluded under the Trade Agreements Act are not submitted to Congress for approval. As the situation in this respect is different in Canada, it is not considered necessary to adopt the United States procedure.

3. The present practice under which Canadian industrialists, agriculturists and others interested, may communicate with the Minister of Finance, the Minister of Trade and Commerce, or other ministers concerned, on all matters respecting commercial treaty negotiations, is believed to be adequate.
