Mr. J. H. BLACKMORE (Lethbridge):
Mr. Speaker, it is reported to me that over the,radio to-day it was anounced that President Roosevelt has called an international monetary conference for July 1, 1944. Will the Minister of Finance tell the house not later than Monday: first, whether or not Canada has been invited to this conference; second, whether or not, if invited, Canada has accepted the invitation; third, whether or not the Canadian delegates, if Canada should send such, will be told that they shall have no power to commit Canada to any international monetary agreement until after such agreement shall have been subjected to the maturest consideration by the parliament of Canada?
