Hon. COLIN GIBSON (Minister of National Defence for Air):

Hon. members of the house will remember that on June 29 a Meteor jet-propelled aircraft flying from Kapuskasing was reported as missing. In spite of an intense search covering several weeks no trace of the missing plane or pilot was found. I am glad to inform the members of the house that a report has been received to-day that the pilot of the plane, Flight-Lieutenant W. H. McKenzie, has walked into Blind River, nearly four weeks after he was reported missing.

WAR CRIMES

REENACTMENT OF REGULATIONS MADE BY ORDER IN COUNCIL


Right Hon. L. S. ST. LAURENT (Acting Prime Minister) moved for leave to introduce bill No. 309, respecting war crimes.


PC

Gordon Graydon

Progressive Conservative

Mr. GRAYDON:

Would the minister

explain?

Mr. ST. LAURENT: The explanation may be very short. This is a bill to reenact in statutory form the regulations that were made by order in council with respect to the trial of war criminals. The bill will provide that it shall remain in force until such date as is fixed by a proclamation to be published in the official Gazette. It is not thought that it is necessary to have the regulations in force as permanent legislation, but it is felt that it is necessary that they be in force for a longer period than would prevail under the order in council.

Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.
