Mr. MACKENZIE KING. Tomorrow we shall take up the resolution with respect to the trade agreement between Canada and the United States.

Robert James Manion (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. MANION:

Mr. Speaker, in regard

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.
