Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Prime Minister):
I might answer my hon. friend's question immediately. Sir Walter Layton was sent by the British government to confer with the government of the United States at Washington. While he was on that mission he paid what I think he would describe as a courtesy visit to Canada, and in the course of that visit was kind enough to come to luncheon with me and give me an opportunity of discussing with him some matters of mutual interest. He did not come for the purpose of tendering any advice to the Canadian government; nor did he tender any advice, so far as I know.
