Richard Bedford Bennett (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. BENNETT:

The minister has but
evaded my question. My position, however, is this: the British Empire submission was not made as an empire. The hon. gentleman says that the United Kingdom made the submission, and there is an agreement that the component communities comprising the British Empire would come to an understanding amongst themselves. I asked whether Canada had made any submission. He said no, that Canada had offered to reduce. What can Canada reduce beyond what she now has?
