William Lyon Mackenzie King (Prime Minister; Secretary of State for External Affairs; President of the Privy Council)


Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Prime Minister):

It is not the intention of the government to take up supply to-day, but the Minister of Finance (Mr. Dunning) has an interim supply bill, to make provision for two months of the present fiscal year, and also a bill relating to extra supplementary estimates for the last fiscal year. I would ask that the house give its consent to going into supply, for the purpose of getting these bills through, before proceeding with the next order of business.
Motion agreed to and the house went into committee of supply, Mr. Sanderson in the chair.
