Hon. GROTE STIRLING (Yale):
desire to draw attention to a statement which appeared in the Star Weekly of Saturday, August 3. I will read two short paragraphs, if I may be permitted. It is apropos of the action of the mayor of Montreal recently:
Premier King said the house could rely on the government to see that the laws of the country were duly upheld. He promised to make a statement later.

"I declare myself peremptorily against national registration," Mr. Hanson said. "It is unequivocally a measure of conscription. Parliament, according to my belief, has no mandate to vote conscription."
It seems to me most unfortunate that on so serious a matter as this the leader of the opposition (Mr. Hanson) should have been thus misreported.
