Of course, I am not prepared to speak as to that. The right hon. gentleman who leads the government and the House is here. It is for the House to express its views, and if there is a strong opinion on both sides, no doubt the government would be largely influenced by it. I may state, from all the conversation I have had with hon. members on both sides, that the opinion is practically unanimous that if the government should see its way clear to make a grant towards this expedition, it would reflect the public opinion of the country.
