Mr. MACKENZIE KING:

The leader of the opposition I am sure will be the first to realize that the disposition of troops is a matter which comes pretty much exclusively within the purview of the high command. The government has every reason to believe that the high command in Great Britain, in the disposition that it is making of troops, is following the course which it believes, in the interest of all, it is wisest to take. I am afraid I cannot add more to that statement.
