Right Hon. ARTHUR MEIGHEN (Leader of the Opposition):
I should like also to refer to a question asked some two days ago, or three, relating to the reported or pending agreement as to defence as between France, Germany and Great Britain, and to ask the government if they would lay on the Table this session-on Monday if possible-the correspondence relating thereto. I hope that a too jealous care will not be taken to extend the confidentiality of the correspondence in order to prevent its 'being kid on the table because if so we shall know practically nothing about it for many months to come.
Hon. GEORGE P. GRAHAM (Minister of Railways and Canals): I do not know if there is any correspondence, although there may be. There is no objection to laying it on the table if it be not considered confidential. From what my right hon. friend says he knows what that, means.
