Mr. GORDON GRAYDON (Leader of the Opposition):
I wish to direct the following question to the Prime Minister. A Canadian press dispatch under Washington dateline of June 10 states that:
"The first step has been taken in the creation of a united nations relief and rehabilitation agency to feed, clothe, shelter and guide back to health the people of war-ravished nations as they are redeemed from axis domination," the United States State Department announced to-day.
The dispatch goes on to say;
A draft agreement, providing for machinery to carry out this objective has been approved by Great Britain, United States, Russia and China.
Will the Prime Minister indicate to the house the role lyhich this nation will play in connection with this new development? I should be glad if the Prime Minister would also comment on the report current in Washington that in view of our enormous
agricultural resources the chairmanship of the supplies committee of this agency may go to Canada.
