James Joseph McCann (Minister of National Revenue; Minister of National War Services)

Liberal

Mr. McCANN:

The purpose of this amendment is to enlarge the War Charities Act to include war memorials as projects acceptable for registration. As it is at present constituted, the act governs all appeals, charitable or otherwise, arising out of or connected with the war. It is felt that this interpretation of a war charity fund is not sufficient to bring all types of appeals for war memorials within the provisions of the act. This amendment clarifies the meaning of a war charity fund and ensures that war memorial appeals will require authorization under the act.

Mr. CHURCH:

Is the amount under the

act reduced or increased as a result of the amendment? It was $12,000,000 last year.

DISMISSAL OF EDITOR OF "MAPLE LEAF"-TABLING OF EDITORIALS


On the orders of the day:


PC

John Bracken (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. JOHN BRACKEN (Leader of the Opposition):

During a statement by the

Minister of National Defence on September 24 in connection with the dismissal of the editor of the Canadian overseas army newspaper Maple Leaf, he promised to have the editorials in question placed on Hansard as

Far-Eastern Commission

soon as possible. Will the minister be good enough to inform the house if he has received the documents in question, and, if so, when we may expect that they will be tabled, so that they may appear in Hansard?

Gordon Graydon

Progressive Conservative

Mr. GORDON GRAYDON (Peel):

I should like to ask this question of the Acting Secretary of State for External Affairs. Has Canada been officially invited to join the new far-eastern commission which will direct the carrying out of the Japanese surrender terms? If so, has Canada accepted? If we have accepted, who will represent this nation on the commission, and where and when will the initial meeting of the commission be held?

Hon. L. S. ST. LAURENT (Acting Secretary of State for External Affairs): My information is that discussions looking to the establishment of a far-eastern commission have been under way in London for some time, but have not yet reached the stage where official invitations have been issued.

There was some intimation in the press concerning Canada's joining that commission; that is what prompted my asking the question.
