Mr. SPEAKER:

I have the honour to inform the House that I have just received the following cablegram:
Honourable Rodolphe Lemieux,
Speaker, House of Commons,
Canada.
The members of the Industrial Group of the House of Commons visiting the Marconi Company's wireless telegraph stations send from Radio House, London, greetings to the members of the Canadian Parliament. They recall with pride the fact that the first long-distance wireless telegraph service in the world was established by Senatore Marconi between Great Britain and the Dominion of Canada.
Secretary, Industrial Group,
House of Commons,
Radio House,
London.
To this cablegram I have despatched t' e following reply:
Secretary,
Industrial Group,
London, England.
In the name of Canadian House of Commons I wish to reciprocate your greetings and to thank you for your thoughtful reference to Canadian pioneering experience in wireless which, if possible, links the Dominion more closely to Motherland.
Rodolphe Lemieux,
Speaker, House of Commons.
