Liberal

Mr. MACKENZIE KING:

I may say to
the right hon. leader of the opposition (Mr. Bennett) that the Minister of Pensions and National Health (Mr. Power), at the time
of introducing his bill respecting opium and narcotic drugs in February last explained the convention very fully. The bill was in the nature of legislation to implement Canada's undertakings with respect to the convention. At that time the house, I think, had before it the convention, which I have since tabled.
I shall be pleased, however to see that copies are sent to the leader of the opposition.
