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 promised hon. gentlemen opposite last night that I would lay on the Table to-day the correspondence between the government and the High Commissioner with respect to the London building. The correspondence is being copied and I hope to have it on the Table before the House rises. I might mention one circumstance in connection with the matter. Hon. gentlemen will realize that as between myself and the High Commissioner there are many letters which deal with a large number of topics and which are written sometimes with a good deal of freedom of expression. I doubt whether it would serve any useful purpose to have those letters placed in full on the Table of the House, but I assure the House that any facts relative to the building will be brought down.
