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

During the

Imperial economic conference certain volumes of statistics were compiled for the use of members of the conference-one on the trade of Canada with British Empire countries and the United States, another comprising statistical abstracts of trade with British Empire countries, and another relating to the trade of Canada with Australia and the other dominions. May I ask the Prime Minister whether copies of these statistical documents are to be made available for members of the house in connection with the consideration of these various treaties.

enable a copy to be available for each member of the house, but I will endeavour to secure complete copies of them and lay them on the table tomorrow, so that there will be at least one copy. If there are more available. I shall have great pleasure in laying them on the table.

Mr. MACKENZIE KING:

I feel that they are very important public documents and if each member could be furnished with a copy I think it would be of advantage to all concerned.

Mr. BENNETT:

They were prepared, like other documents, for use at the conference. It has never been the practice that such documents be laid upon the table or that they be made available for general use. If there are copies available for general use I shall be glad to make them available, but the type obviously has been broken up and we would hardly incur the expense of reprinting. There may be copies and to that extent I shall make them available.
