Mr. MACKENZIE KING:

Mr. Speaker,
the answer to the question as drafted is in the negative. As already indicated in answer to a question by the member for Rosetown-Biggar (Mr. Coldwell) on March 1, the government has been receiving from the United Kingdom government certain communications relating to the international situation. Such communications are continuing. As indicated in that answer and in answer to a question by the member for Winnipeg North Centre (Mr. Woodsworth), on February 25, these communications are in the nature of information rather than consultation upon policies. As such, they are helpful to the Canadian government in assisting it to understand the actual facts of the current situation.
