Richard Bedford Bennett (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Right Hon. R. B. BENNETT (Leader of the Opposition):

Before the orders of the day are proceeded with, Mr. Speaker, I desire to direct the attention of the right hon. Prime Minister (Mr. Mackenzie King) to an address made in Detroit last evening by Senator Pittman, in which he quoted a letter addressed to him by the president of the United States with regard to the St. Lawrence waterway. I desire to know whether or not any modifications of the existing agreement signed by the United States and Canada are contemplated or have been under discussion. If it should be difficult to answer the question without reference to documents I should like the right hon. gentleman to accept this as notice of the question.
