Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Prime Minister):
As my hon. friend knows,
this session was called for the specific purpose I have mentioned and there have been, I was going to say, innumerable requests that the government pass this amendment or that, or introduce this or that piece of legislation. We have felt it necessary, however, to hold to the purposes announced and not to go beyond them. In the circumstances it is not the intention of the government to introduce anything outside our announced programme. The matter to which my hon. friend has just referred is no dou'bt one that will be promptly taken up by whatever government may be in office at the first session of the new parliament.
