LIB

William Lyon Mackenzie King (Prime Minister; Secretary of State for External Affairs; President of the Privy Council)

Liberal

Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Prime Minister):

Mr. Speaker, I have a brief announcement to make. I am making it on motions because it will be made at three o'clock this afternoon in two other countries.

I should like to inform the house that the Canadian government have agreed with the Chilean government for the elevation of their respective legations to the rank of embassy. No change in personnel is contemplated. Mr. Warwick Chipman, who presented his letter of credence as Canadian minister on March 5, 1943, will remain as Canadian Ambassador to Chile, and Doctor Eduardo Grove, who presented his letter of credence as Chilean Minister to Canada on September 15, 1942, will become Chilean Ambassador to Canada upon his return from Chile, where he is at present on leave of absence.

A similar agreement has been reached with the government of Peru. Hon. members will recall that on January 28 of this year it was announced that diplomatic missions would be exchanged between Peru and Canada, and it has now been agreed that these will be of the rank of embassy.
