Mr. Fournier (Hull):

If I might interrupt at this stage; I discussed the matter with the hon. member for Peel (Mr. Graydon) last night, and he had no objection. Otherwise I would not have put it on. He knows this bill is going before the committee on external affairs, and is anxious to see it go there. That is why I brought it on tonight. He even went further than that. He told me to tell your leader that he agreed that it should go to 55704-133
Treaty of Peace (Japan) Act this committee. That is where they discuss these important matters, I understand-and I would like to please the hon. member for Peel.
