PRIME MINISTER CHURCHILL

SUGGESTED PUBLICATION IN VOTES AND PROCEEDINGS OF SPEECH OF MAY 24


On the orders of the day:


LIB

Thomas Alexander Crerar (Minister of Mines and Resources)

Liberal

Hon. T. A. CRERAR (Minister of Mines and Resources):

Mr. Speaker, a few days ago the hon. member for Temiscouata (Mr. Pouliot) directed an inquiry to the government as to whether it was the intention to print in Votes and Proceedings of the house the speech delivered by the Prime Minister of Great Britain before the British parliament following the recent conference of prime ministers.

I have made some inquiries since the hon. member again brought up the matter yester-

City oj Ottawa-Joint Committee

day, and I may say it is not the intention of the government to have that speech recorded in the proceedings of the house. After all, the records of this house are for the discussions and debates which take place here. The speech of the Prime Minister of Great Britain is recorded in British Hansard, and has also been published in full in many of the newspapers of Canada.

Yesterday the hon. member for Broadview (Mr. Church) asked if it was the intention to widen the scope of the committee at present inquiring into certain matters as between the city of Ottawa and the government.

I should like to ask the parliamentary assistant to the Minister of National Defence for Air whether negotiations are under way between air ministry officials in Great Britain and Canada with a view to arranging that Royal Canadian .Air Force men shall become eligible for repatriation to Canada after three years' service overseas. I would be glad if he would give the house the latest available information on this .point.

Cyrus Macmillan (Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of National Defence for Air)

Liberal

Hon. CYRUS MACMILLAN (Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of National Defence for Air):

Mr. Speaker in reply to the leader of the opposition, who courteously gave me notice of this question, I may say that negotiations were completed some time ago between air ministry officials of Great Britain and Canada and an agreement was entered into under which aircrew personnel of the Royal Canadian Air Force who have served three years overseas will be eligible for repatriation to Canada. Such repatriation is always subject to the operational needs of the service.
