Mr. CLAXTON:

On inquiry from Doctor Chisholm I find that the only speech of which he has notes was given on October 29, 1945 and it has since been published. It was given as a professional man to a professional audience without his representing the government or the department. It is submitted that under standing order 51 matters that are required to be produced are those relating to public business and obtainable through public authority but not available in published form.

ATOMIC ENERGY

PROPOSAL OF UNITED STATES DELEGATE TO COMMISSION-CONSULTATION WITH OTHER GOVERNMENTS


On the orders of the day:


PC

Gordon Graydon

Progressive Conservative

Mr. GORDON GRAYDON (Peel):

I should like to direct a question to the right hon. Minister of Reconstruction and Supply, as well as to the former acting Secretary of State for External Affairs (Mr. St. Laurent). Was the reported offer of the United States delegate to the atomic energy commission to scrap the atomic bomb monopoly in exchange for a guaranteed world front outlawing the weapons of mass destruction made after consultation with the other two governments including Canada who are in possession of the secrets of atomic energy?

Right Hon. C. D. HOWE (Minister of Reconstruction and Supply):

While there have been numerous informal discussions between the officials of Canada and the United States on questions relating to the international control of atomic energy, there was no specific consultation with the Canadian government on the precise terms of the proposal put before the atomic energy commission by the United States representative.

UNITED NATIONS

BILL OF HUMAN RIGHTS FOR INCORPORATION IN PEACE TREATIES


On the orders of the day:


PC

Gordon Graydon

Progressive Conservative

Mr. GORDON GRAYDON (Peel):

I

desire to ask another question. When I drew up this question I was not sure that we should be favoured to-day with the presence of the Prime Minister, and I sent notice of it to the Minister of Justice. I shall direct my question now to the Secretary of State for External Affairs. The drafting committee of the united nations economic and social council is reported on Saturday last to have strongly approved a bill of human rights for incorporation into peace treaties with enemy countries. Since Canada has a seat on the council, what position is the Canadian delegate taking with respect to the matter?

Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Secretary of State for External Affairs):

My hon. friend's question was referred to me. While Canada is a member of the economic and social council, I have been informed that the council has not yet received the report from the drafting committee and therefore there has not been an opportunity thus far to consider the contents of the report or the attitude in consequence which Canada should take with reference to the provisions of the bill referred to.
