Mr. POWER:

I should like to answer this question orally, as follows:

1. Yes.

2. Dependents' allowance is being paid on his account to Mrs. N. A. Kennedy, Barbara

Questions

Joan and Charles W. Kennedy, wife and children of Wing Commander H. M. Kennedy.

3. Wing Commander Kennedy is assistant director of Air Transport Command and was posted to R.C.A.F. headquarters on 5th October, 1943.

4. The appointment of Wing Commander Kennedy to his present post was made in full accordance with the promotion policy of the R.CA.F. and on merit. Civilian sources are not consulted by the R.C.A.F. with regard to postings and promotions within its rank.

I answer this question orally because I would wish, Mr. Speaker, to draw your attention to the kind of question which has been *asked. I have no desire to restrain hon. members from asking questions; on the contrary, I think that they should have full privilege to ask any questions they desire and place them on the order paper. But I do seriously doubt the propriety of placing on the order paper such questions as this. Any one of us, any member of this house and any member of the services, might have some skeleton in his family closet which would be disclosed or to which attention could be drawn by questions of this kind. Personally I think it is not a good practice, and I would hope, Mr. Speaker, that through the Clerk we could find some means whereby at least, when questions of this kind are to be placed on the order paper, the minister and the department concerned would be advised. It so happens in this case that Wing Commander Kennedy is one of the best officers in our service, so that I have no objection to answering the question.

Mr. GRAYDON:

May I, in the absence of the hon. member for York East (Mr. McGregor) who is at the moment out of the chamber, in whose name the question appears on the order paper, say to the minister that while he has made some reference to the kind of question this is, he himself could very readily have spoken to the hon. member and have avoided unnecessary publicity in connection with it.

Mr. POWER:

I am not the guardian of an hon. member's sense of what is good taste and what is decent. I simply point out that I think the question should have been submitted to me before it was placed on the order paper and a doubt cast on the integrity of one of the abiest and most conscientious men in our service.
