Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Prime Minister):
May I say to my hon. friend that after he addressed his question to the government yesterday I had word sent to the German consul general in Montreal stating that I should like to have an exact statement of what he did say. I have received from the consul general, Mr. Kempff, a telegram saying that he has sent the government the exact statement he made. That statement however had not been received up to the time I came into the house this afternoon. I shall therefore have to ask my hon. friend to let his question of yesterday, and also what he has read to-day, stand over for reply until to-morrow.
