Mr. MACKENZIE KING:

This is a new bill, a different bill altogether. My right hon. friend's bill was the original bill. It would have gone on to its second reading and into committee of the whole and to its third reading without being referred to any special committee at all but for the suggestion that came from this side of the house and which to his credit my right hon. friend accepted. The bill having gone to the special committee and the members of that committee having worked day and night for days doing their utmost to bring the measure to the point where as far as possible it would be acceptable to all parties in the house, I think my right hon. friend ought to have given full credit to the members of the committee for having achieved that result.
