Liberal

Mr. MACKENZIE KING:

I do not know that I am called upon to explain the matter in just the way my right hon. friend has put the question, but I will say this to him: the trouble with my hon. friend and with those who think like him is this, they can only admit in their mind one kind of preference, and that of a tariff preference. They cannot understand that there may be such a thing as a voluntary preference.
