CARDINAL MINDSZENTY

INQUIRY AS TO FURTHER ACTION BY CANADIAN GOVERNMENT


On the orders of the day:


PC

George Alexander Drew (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. George A. Drew (Leader of the Opposition):

I should like to direct a question to the Prime Minister. I have not had an opportunity to put it in writing, but the subject matter is such that I think he will be able to answer it without notice.

Louis Stephen St-Laurent (Prime Minister; President of the Privy Council)

Liberal

Right Hon. L. S. Si. Laurent (Prime Minister):

The verdict and sentence of the Hungarian court have just been announced, and the government has not yet had an opportunity to consider the matter. Before indicating the steps it may take, the government will again communicate with the other signatories to the Hungarian peace treaty, because we feel that if there could be joint action it would be likely to be more effective than the separate action of one signatory.
