UNESCO-NATIONAL COMMISSION OR COOPERATING BODY


Om the orders of the day: Mr. DONALD M. FLEMrNG (Eglinton): I should like to direct a question to the Secretary of State fior External Affairs. What has been done by the government toward the forming of a national commission in keeping with article VII of the charter of UNESCO? Right Hon. L. S. ST. LAURENT (Secretary of State for External Affairs): In October of last year a temporary advisory committee consisting of representatives from government departments and various national organizations interested in education, science and culture was established. One of the terms of reference of this committee was to advise the government on the establishment of a national com- mission or cooperating body on UNESCO questions. Consideration of this question by the temporary advisory committee was deferred until the general conference of UNESCO had clearly determined the programme of that organization.

Mr. GRAYDON:

Has the minister any information to give as to whether the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics are to take some part in UNESCO?

Mr. ST. LAURENT: The only information I have is that observers on their behalf attended the general conference of UNESCO. I do not know of any indication of an intention to become members of the organization.

Mr. SKEY:

May I ask the minister if when he brings down the information on cadets he will include information on air cadets, with specific reference to whether the air cadet programme in Canada has been curtailed?

Mr. CLAXTON:

I shall be glad to get that information. I think I should explain to hon. members that it would require a pretty lengthy statement to deal with the whole cadet programme, and it seems to me it might be more appropriately dealt with on the estimates. However, I shall be glad to look into it and possibly give the hon. gentleman and the house as full information as possible.

EMERGENCY POWERS BILL-ORDERS IN COUNCIL- PRICE AND RENT CONTROLS


On the orders of the day:


PC

John George Diefenbaker

Mr. J. G. DIEFENBAKER (Lake Centre):

I should like to direct a question to the Minister of Justice arising out of the answer he gave yesterday as to the power of amendment of orders in council which will be attached to the

Inquiries oj the Ministry

omnibus bill. Will the orders in council covering price control and rent controls be subject to the necessary changes, as they are at the present time, over the period during which the act will be in force?

Right Hon. J. L. ILSLEY (Minister of

Justice): As I said yesterday, the orders in council relating to price control and rental control will not be subject to amendment or extension; they will be subject to revocation either in whole or in part. Perhaps my hon. friend has in mind the duties and functions of agencies operating under the orders in council. Those agencies will have the power to perform such duties as are granted to them under and by these orders in council, and in that way they will be able to make the necessary changes in maximum prices, for example, as may be required from time to time.
