Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Leader of the Opposition):

If the house is

interested in getting this information, as I have no doubt it is, it will be equally interested in getting like information for the years immediately preceding and immediately following those mentioned. Accordingly I would move that the motion be amended by adding in line 4, after the word "1929" the words "also the fiscal years ending March 31, 1930 and 1931, and the fiscal years ending March 31, 1919, 1920 and 1921."
