Hon. Mr. FIELDING:

I do not know what happened in regard to the motion of my hon. friend, Mr. Speaker, but so far as the French treaty being set down for to-day is concerned, there can be no misunderstanding. Several questions were asked as to the time when it 'would be brought forward, and a few evenings ago it was definitely stated that in all probability this treaty would be brought up on Tuesday, and last night it was more precisely stated, so there can be no misunderstanding with regard to the time. If there has been any misunderstanding on the part of my hon. friend with regard to his motion I am very sorry, but it is not within my knowledge.
