Mr. MACKENZIE KING:
I had hoped that the amendment would carry but if the Prime Minister takes the view he does, I assume it will not. I trust the Prime Minister will nevertheless make the modification which he has suggested and alter the words "notwithstanding the provisions of any statute or law" to read "in addition to the provisions of any statute or law." It would make only a slight difference; the clause would still be objectionable, but what is proposed would be a modification.
Subtopic: BILL IN TERMS GENERALLY OF RELIEF ACT, 1933, WITH PROVISION RESPECTING DELAYED RELIEF ACCOUNTS
