Mr. WOODSWORTH:

If necessary, I can read the resolutions in that connection, and I will do so when I am speaking again on this matter. What I should like to reiterate is that these large representative bodies, as well as other bodies of citizens, have taken a strong stand on this matter and have laid their protests before the government. Therefore I would suggest to the new Minister of National Defence that in the preparation of next year's estimates he give due consideration to those protests.

Sections 2, 3 and 4 agreed to.

Bill reported, read the third time and passed.

Resolved that a message be sent to the House of Commons to acquaint that House that it is the Deputy Governor's desire that they attend him immediately in the Senate chamber.

Accordingly, the House went up to the Senate,
