LIB

William Lyon Mackenzie King (Prime Minister; Secretary of State for External Affairs; President of the Privy Council)

Liberal

Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Prime Minister):

I desire to lay on the table copies of the report of Hon. Mr. Justice Henry Hague Davis, a commissioner appointed by order in council P.C. 2251, dated September 7, 1938, to inquire into the Bren machine gun contract dated March 31, 1938, between His Majesty the King, represented by the Hon. the Minister of National Defence of Canada, and John Inglis Company Limited.

I anticipated, Mr. Speaker, that there would be a desire to have this report in printed form as soon as the house met. Therefore immediately upon its receipt I arranged with the clerk to have his requisition made upon the king's printer for the printing of the report. I also arranged for its translation, so that I am now able to lay it upon the table in printed form in both English and French, and to announce that it is available for immediate distribution.

On motion of Mr. Mackenzie King the house adjourned at 4 p.m.
