PRIVILEGE-MR. HAMEL REQUEST FOR A CORRECTION IN THE "VOTES AND PROCEEDINGS", IN CONNECTION WITH THE ' THIRD READING OF A BILL

Mr. J. IRENEE HAMEL (St. Maurice-Lafleche):

Mr. Speaker, I rise to a question of privilege. On Friday, July 11, Bill No. 411 authorizing the government to enter into agreements wdth the various provinces, had its third reading.

The Votes and Proceedings of the house for that date do not mention that the said bill was read the third time and passed "on division".

On that occasion I voiced my disagreement, as reference to page 5436 of Hansard will show.

Canadian Armed Forces

Therefore, the Votes and Proceedings should be corrected so as to indicate my disagreement, and in fairness to those hon. members who did not support the third reading.

PRIVILEGE-MR. POULIOT


CORRECTION OP A REPORT IN THE JULY 11 ISSUE OP "LE soleil"


IND

Jean-François Pouliot

Independent Liberal

Mr. JEAN FRANCOIS POULIOT (Temis-couata):

Mr. Speaker, in the first column, on the front page of the July 11 issue of Le Soleil, I am quoted as having made the following statement:

Mr. Pouliot said that the whole problem boiled down to a struggle between taxpayers, and he pointed out that there were more dominion than provincial taxpayers.

I never made such a statement. What I said was that the problem boiled down to a struggle between taxpayers and bureaucrats and I pointed out that the bureaucrats were more numerous in the dominion than in the provincial field. I hope Le Soleil will make the necessary correction.

Mr. BRACKEN:

Would the minister make clear the substance of the agreement arrived at in order that the house may understand what we are asked to do?

Mr. ILSLEY:

Mr. Speaker, it is very complicated. Last night I presented the report. The conference dealt with two amendments to the criminal code. One was an amendment to the nuisance sections of the code, and the difference of opinion turned upon the definition of what should be regarded as a public place. The other amendment had to do with a homicide which is brought about by the use of a weapon which is carried by one of the persons responsible for the homicide. It would take quite a while to enter into the fine points, and it took the conference a long time to hammer it out. The reason the motion was allowed to stand last night was that hon.

members might have an opportunity to familiarize themselves with these fine points.

Yesterday's Hansard is not out yet. We could have done that if we had had Hansard.

CANADIAN ARMED FORCES

EXTENSION OF AWARD OF CANADIAN GENERAL SERVICE BADGE

LIB

Brooke Claxton (Minister of National Defence)

Liberal

Hon. BROOKE CLAXTON (Minister of National Defence):

Mr. Speaker, I would like to make a brief announcement in connection with the award of the Canadian general service badge. Up to the present, the award of this badge has been limited to men and women who served during the war in the armed forces of Canada. Provision was not made for the award of the badge to Canadians who served in the armed forces of Great Britain or any of the other dominions or other allied governments. In Great Britain no service badge was awarded and a number of Canadians who served in the British forces were not entitled to wear any badge. This applied particularly to a very large number of Canadians, about 4,000 in all who joined the Royal Air Force before and during the war. To meet these cases, it has been decided to extend the award of this badge to Canadians who served in the armed forces of any of the nations of the British commonwealth or allied countries.

Application by those who are entitled to the badge should be made to the director of records, Department of Veterans Affairs, No. 8 Temporary Building, Ottawa, who, after verifying eligibility, will transfer the applications to the Department of National Defence for issue of the badge.

Hon. BROOKE CLAXTON (Minister of National Defence):

Mr. Speaker, on March 21, a question was asked in the house as to the transfer of personal records of former members of the armed forces from the Department of National Defence to the Department of Veterans Affairs. The question was partly answered by my colleague the right hon. Minister of Veterans Affairs on March 25, when plans were already under way for this transfer. I am glad to say that those plans are being carried out so that the records of all

service personnel will be transferred to the Department of Veterans Affairs as part of the government's policy of having everything to do with veterans dealt with by a single department.
