Mr. MITCHELL:

I was in Great Britain at that time. This is just a red herring that my hon. friend draws across the trail-purely propaganda.

Mr. MITCHELL:

You cannot blow hot and cold on this thing. People in this country who are great champions of the displaced persons in Europe, when a move is made by this government, at once throw up a political smokescreen to destroy the policy set in motion.

My hon. friend talks of slavery and the Polish people in these displaced persons camps. Why do they not want to go back to Poland? Let him ask himself that question.

Mr. MITCHELL:

I listened to my hon. friend when he was making his speech; I did not interrupt him when he talked about the Polish people. I agreed with him that we should not take too seriously what we see in the newspapers. The other fellow has a right to be heard. My hon. friend, who has a sense of justice, should have at least waited a couple of days and held the inquest when the hon. member for Beauce (Mr. Dionne) was in his seat.
