Mr. MACKENZIE (Vancouver Centre):

In regard to the first part of the motion I must make the usual reservation in regard to any confidential documents. I do not think there are any, but that will apply in case there should be. This seems to be a sort of double motion; there is no connection between the second portion and the first part; I think perhaps there should be two separate returns, though it really does not matter.
