William Lyon Mackenzie King (Leader of the Official Opposition)


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

Mr. Speaker, I notice that at adjournment last night the Prime Minister (Mr. Bennett) said that he understood there was an arrangement that we should continue to-day with the debate on Bill No. 4, respecting the bureau for translations, after which we would take up the bill to incorporate the Bank of Canada. The arrangement to which my right hon. friend referred is possibly one which he may have had with his own Secretary of State (Mr. Cahan), but as I understand it, there has been no arrangement between the two sides of the house. In connection with the bill to incorporate the Bank of Canada I did tell the Minister of Finance (Mr. Rhodes) that if it were agreeable we would be prepared to proceed this afternoon, but nothing was said with respect to the other legislation.
