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

Mr. Speaker, may I say in reply to my hon. friend that the matter of exchange of high commissioners between Canada and India has been under consideration for some little time. It is wholly correct to say that Canada intends to send a high commissioner to India, and that India intends to send a high commissioner to Canada. The exchange of high commissioners will be reciprocal. The government up to the moment

have not been able to decide on the particular person to be appointed as high commissioner from Canada but I hope that an appointment may soon be made.
