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

I wish to lay on the table copies of recent correspondence between the government of Canada and the government of the United States whereby agreement was reached in regard to certain developments on the St. Lawrence-Great Lakes system. This is the correspondence asked for on Friday
last by the hon. member for Davenport (Mr. MacNicol). It consists of a formal interchange of notes between the Canadian Minister to the United States and the United States Secretary of State embodying the points of understanding arrived at in previous conversations between the two governments.
I should like at the same time to table copies of the correspondence exchanged recently with the premier of Ontario and the premier of Quebec on this subject.
