§ 58. Mr. HURD
asked the Prime Minister whether it was on the advice of His Majesty's Ministers in the United Kingdom or His Majesty's Ministers in the Dominion of Canada that the Canadian Minister Plenipotentiary alone was authorised to sign the recent Treaty with the United States on behalf of the King; and when he will lay upon the Table the correspondence leading up to this development in the constitutional practice of the British Empire?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
The arrangement made was the result of agreement between the two Governments. I am considering the question of laying correspondence.
