Richard Burpee Hanson (Leader of the Official Opposition)

National Government

Mr. HANSON (York-Sunbury):

Then I should like to ask the Prime Minister whether this agreement will be submitted to parliament at this session. If so, will it be submitted before it has been considered and approved, or otherwise, by the United States congress. Finally, I should like to ask him if he will lay on the table of the house an opinion of the Department of Justice, if one has been received, as to the legality of proceeding by way of agreement rather than by way of treaty?
