Mr. MACKENZIE KING:
If by "obstacle" is meant "legal obstacle," there is no obstacle to His Majesty, on the recommendation of
the Canadian government, authorizing the creation of a national Canadian flag. The government would not make such a recommendation without the prior approval of the House of Commons. It is the view of the government that, with war conditions what they are, it would not be justified in asking the House of Commons to debate the matter at the present time.
