I should like to ask the
minister whether he intends to carry on a debate along these lines. I had not intended to participate in the debate nor had other hon. members on this side. We are commending the treaty. We believe it is a good one. I was going to ask the minister whether, on reconsideration, he would not think it wiser under the circumstances to abstain in his remarks from partisanship, because otherwise there will be involved a really warm discussion in which most of us will have to participate.
