WAR MUNITIONS AND SUPPLIES

CREATION BY UNITED STATES AND CANADA OF JOINT DEFENCE PRODUCTION COMMITTEE


On the orders of the day:


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 should like to lay on the table of the house copies in English and French of a statement concerning an agreement recently reached between the President of the United States and myself to accept the recommendation of the joint economic committees of Canada and the United States that a joint defence production committee be established for the purpose of coordinating most effectively the activities of the two countries for the production of defence material. I might add that the establishment of this committee had been arranged before I visited Hyde Park, and is not in the nature of anything growing out of the meeting that took place there between the president and myself.

Will that be published in the Votes and Proceedings?

Mr. MACKENZIE KING:

If that might be done I should be pleased.

Yesterday the leader of the opposition also asked if the meeting between the president and myself was other than purely personal, as I had stated it to be. I would repeat what I have said already, that it was a purely personal week-end visit on the invitation of the president; but I would not like it to be assumed that the president and I had not discussed public matters. Certainly there was a very free exchange of both thought and information, and I cannot think of any subject we left untouched.

ALASKA HIGHWAY

INQUIRY AS TO REPORT OF COMMISSION


On the orders of the day:


SC

Ernest George Hansell

Social Credit

Mr. E. G. HANSELL (Macleod):

I should like to ask the Prime Minister if the commission appointed some time ago to investigate the Alaska highway has made a report; and, if so, will the report be laid upon the table this session?

I know there has been an interim report of some kind. But perhaps my hon. friend would let me give him a more complete reply to-morrow.

DIVORCE

JURISDICTION OF COURTS IN PROVINCE IN WHICH MARRIED WOMAN RESIDES-PUBLIC BILL No. 99

NAT

George Black

National Government

Mr. GEORGE BLACK (Yukon):

Mr. Speaker, on a question of privilege I would call the attention of the government to public bills and orders appearing on the order paper, and particularly to a bill standing in my name as order No. 12. This bill has passed the senate and has had a first reading in this chamber. Would it not be possible to have second and third readings of the bill in the house, if not at this session, then when the house meets again pursuant to adjournment and before prorogation? If the house prorogues without finishing the business on the order paper, all that has been done before will be washed out and will have to be done again. The bill would have to have three readings in this house, three in the senate, and receive royal assent. It is all but through this house, and I would ask the Prime Minister (Mr. Mackenzie King) to give me some indication as to what might be expected.

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

Mr. Speaker, I would like to do anything reasonable and possible for my hon. friend. He may have noticed however that the senate has adjourned until January 21, and I believe that we would be wise not to attempt to proceed with any bill at least until the present year is out.

Mr. MACKENZIE KING:

There would have to be royal assent as well. And in addition to that my hon. friend will realize that if we granted him this special request we might be faced with many similar requests, and it would be embarrassing to have to refuse any of them.

Mr. BLACK (Yukon):

I understand that. I would not press to have it dealt with now. But could there be some assurance that this bill, and others in the same position, might be dealt with before this session is ended-perhaps next January?
