Hon. R. B. HANSON (Leader of the Opposition):
I desire to direct a question to the Prime Minister, based upon a report of an important and significant speech delivered last night by the premier of Quebec at Montreal, in which he is reported to have said:
We have Mr. King, who has always been against conscription.
We have at the head of the Liberal party Mr. King, who is an anti-conscriptionist.
Mr. King is against conscription.
Is the statement of Mr. Godbout correct? Is there any undertaking, understanding or commitment, express or implied, existing between himself and Mr. Godbout, or between himself and any other person, to the effect that no action will be taken to provide for compulsory military service overseas, even if the plebiscite is answered in the affirmative and he is released from his commitment?
