Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (leader of the Opposition):
Before the Orders of
the Day are called I desire to ask my Right Hon. friend the Prime Minister if we may have laid upon the table of the House before prorogation the correspondence between the Government of Canada and the British Government with regard to the acceptance of certain ships for the Canadian Naval Service. I was informed last night by the Minister of Naval Affairs (Hon. Mr. Ball-antyne) that there was some correspondence which was mostly in the form of cables. I presume it is possible for us to have that correspondence laid on the Table before the House prorogues.
Subtopic: CORRESPONDENCE BETWEEN CANADIAN GOVERNMENT AND ADMIRALTY.
