Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Prime Minister):

Although there was no

formal announcement at the close of the session last night it was understood, I believe, by the leaders of the different parties that the first order of business today would be interim supply. If I am right in that, I assume the Minister of Finance will be allowed precedence with his measure.

Mr. CLARENCE GILLIS (Cape Breton South):

I should like to address a question to the Minister of National Revenue, arising out of press dispatches to the effect that margarine has been brought into this country despite the ban. I have received inquiries asking if certain sections of the public are immune from the law in this respect. In view of the publicity this matter has received I think some official statement is necessary, and I should like to know if the minister intends to make a statement clarifying these press dispatches.

Hon. J. J. McCANN (Minister of National

Revenue): Mr. Speaker, this is the first time

this matter has been brought officially to my attention, and consideration will be given to the question asked by the hon. gentleman.
