The difference between my hon. friend and myself the other day was, that the obligation to acquire this stock, and the obligation' to guarantee the second issue of the bonds were not conditions precedent to the obligation of the government to guarantee the issue of seventy-five per cent. To avoid any doubt about that, I was quite satisfied to take my hon. friend's suggestion in order to make that clear, which I think he does in the first clause of his amendment. I am willing to accept it.
