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

Hon. members will recall, Mr. Speaker, that to-day is the eighteenth birthday anniversary of Her Royal Highness Princess Elizabeth. Last night I sent a message to Her Royal Highness on behalf of the government and the people of Canada, but I am sure that Her Royal Highness would be pleased to receive greetings from the par-

liament of Canada to-day. I would therefore say, if I may; Mr. Speaker, on behalf of hon. members, that this House of Commons sends its warmest and best wishes to Her Royal Highness, and among them the wish that she may have very many very happy returns of the day.
