Richard Bedford Bennett (Prime Minister; President of the Privy Council; Secretary of State for External Affairs)
Right Hon. R. B. BENNETT (Prime Minister):
Mr. Speaker, I move, seconded by Mr. Guthrie:
That it is expedient that parliament, do approve of the international convention for the supervision of international trade in arms and ammunition, Geneva, 17th June, 1925, signed on behalf of Canada by the Honourable Raoul Dandurand on the 22nd September, 1925, and that this house do approve of the same.
It might be that the leader of the opposition (Mr. Mackenzie King) would desire to say something about this motion. Therefore it can stand until to-morrow, and this can be treated merely as notice of motion.
Subtopic: NOTICE OF MOTION FOR APPROVAL OF CONVENTION FOR SUPERVISION OF INTERNATIONAL TRADE IN MUNITIONS AND IMPLEMENTS OF WAR
