Mr. T. L. CHURCH:
I wish to ask a question of the acting leader of the government.. Is it not the practice in the British House of Commons, with regard to such war announcements to-day concerning the three services such as the air, for such announcements to be made in the house on the same day on which they are given to the press? We had a premature announcement on civil aviation about a month ago in connection with Washington. This parliament ought to be informed first on any conventions or agreements. Are we to have all these announcements made, against us or with us, and binding on Canada, without the house having anything to say or do about it?
