Liberal

Mr. MACKENZIE KING:

The request,
or the suggestion rather, my right hon. friend has made, that the House go into committee of the Whole on this resolution will require the unanimous consent of the House, if we are to conform to the rules covering the consideration of the resolution as it appears on the order paper. I may say, speaking for the government, we have no objection whatever to adopting the course mv right hon. friend has proposed. Indeed, I think it is a wise suggestion, and has much to commend it, and I shall be very happy if the House will agree to permit the resolution to be considered in committee of the Whole. If unanimous consent is given we can so arrange. I understand, if we adopt the suggestion, another resolution will have to be drawn.
