INQUIRY AS TO NOMINATIONS FOR ELECTION TO SECURITY COUNCIL


On the orders of the day:


PC

Agar Rodney Adamson

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Rodney Adamson (York West):

I should like to address a question to the Secretary of State for External Affairs or, in his absence, to the Prime Minister. Has the government indicated to the Canadian delegation at the United Nations its wishes with regard to the election of the three new members of the

Inquiries of the Ministry security council for the year 1950, specifically as between Czechoslovakia and Yugoslavia? If so, is the government prepared at the present time to make a statement of its intention?

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

The government has indicated its views as suggestions to the Secretary of State for External Affairs (Mr. Pearson) who heads the delegation at Lake Success. But, as has been the unbroken practice of Canada since the beginning of these meetings, we do not disclose in advance how we intend to vote-the vote is secret, and by ballot-for these offices.

On the orders of the day:

Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (C.C.F.)

Mr. William Bryce (Selkirk):

I wish to direct a question to the Prime Minister. Can he say why the portrait of the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom has not been added to the portrait gallery of distinguished prime ministers on the sixth floor?

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

I do not really know why it has not been added to that gallery, but I assume it is because the officials of this house and of the other place have no portrait available. It may be, Mr. Speaker, that having heard this question, you will see fit to arrange that one be made available and added to the portrait gallery of distinguished prime ministers.

Mr. McLure:

In his absence I will put it on record. Will the Postmaster General give a full explanation of the withdrawal of the special stenographic allowance of $5 a month that the stenographers at the Charlottetown post office have been receiving?

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

I think, Mr. Speaker, the question is one which might very well be put on the order paper; it is of the kind that the Postmaster General (Mr. Rinfret) could not be expected to answer offhand; he would have to secure

the information. I think that the most convenient way of handling the matter would be to have the question placed on the order paper, whereupon I am sure it will receive careful attention.
