William Lyon Mackenzie King (Prime Minister; President of the Privy Council; Secretary of State for External Affairs)


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

I desire to implement
a promise I made yesterday to inform the House, as to any additional (legislation which the Government is likely to propose at the present session.' In addition to what appears on the Order Paper and in Votes and Proceedings of yesterday, the Government proposes to introduce the following: Further supplementary estimates; amendments to the Income Tax Act; amendments to the Oleomargarine Act; amendments to the Three Rivers Harbour Commissioners Act; amendments to the Naturalization Act. Such legislation will also be introduced as may necessarily arise out of reports of the committees of the House, particularly the committee dealing with transportation rates and the committee dealing with soldiers' civil re-establishment. I do not wish to say that this is the final word; some small measure may come up which the Government has not in mind at the moment. But I think I can say that this will include practically all the legislation to be introduced.
