Mr. WOODSWORTH:

May I venture to
comment on that by suggesting that the Prime Minister's statement would show that the present arrangements with regard to our imperial affairs are decidedly inadequate? If we can learn of important decisions of this kind on the part of Great Britain only after they are public property, it would appear that to me we are absolutely helpless with regard
to the most vital matters in our world relations. It seems to me that the Prime Minister and the government have taken too narrow a view of the position of Canada in world affairs when they thought we were not directly involved in a matter of this kind.
