May 29, 1930

Mr. LADNER:

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.

Mr. LADNER:

I rise to express regret that the Prime Minister, as the Minister of External Affairs, should have been disposed to view an international treaty in this way. The hon. gentleman has viewed it from a partisan standpoint.

The Prime Minister may not have prepared it himself, but the intended effect of the statement was to be entirely political and to affect the next election.

Mr. LADNER:

I rose a moment ago to ask the minister a question in respect to item 316. This provides for an expenditure of $367,000 in connection with exhibitions and fairs. Has the minister any tangible evidence of the result which these exhibitions bring to the country?

Mr. LADNER:

The Prime Minister says no. The fact however is quite evident to those of us who know what has been going on. We can read between the lines of ithe remarks of the Prime Minister, and when we view some of his remarks which have appeared in type and consider the care with which they were recorded, it is clear to anyone who can read and can understand that the intention of those remarks and those recorded documents was of a partisan political nature.
