Mr. MACKENZIE KING. Tomorrow we shall take up the resolution with respect to the trade agreement between Canada and the United States. I understand there is a desire not to proceed with the debate tomorrow in which event we would go on with supply, and take the estimates for the Department of Agriculture, Public Works or National Revenue.
to the desire not to proceed, I pointed out privately to the Prime Minister that when the empire trade agreements were introduced on a Wednesday, back in 1932, the Prime Minister (Mr. Mackenzie King), who was then the leader of the opposition, took an adjournment of five days. And when the trade treaty of 1936 with the United States was introduced the right hon. gentleman who was then in my place took an adjournment of three or four days. To-morrow after the Prime Minister's speech I may make a few remarks, and then I shall suggest an adjournment for two days, until Thursday.
