Mr. MACKENZIE KING:

In regard to the celebration of the one-thousandth anniversary of the founding of the parliament of Iceland, it has been thought desirable to have three delegates attend from Canada. The event is a very important one in the history of parliamentary institutions, and it will be an international event. The government had in mind the presentation to Iceland of something of a permanent nature which would be a worthy memorial of the occasion, and I should like the house to know that next year, if the present administration is in office, some proposal along that line will be made. I hope and feel quite sure that if some other administration should be in office, it will be prepared to make a similar appropriation.
