THE LATE HON. J. A. GLEN DEATH OF FORMER SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE EXPRESSIONS OF REGRET AND SYMPATHY

LIB

Elie Beauregard (Speaker of the Senate)

Liberal

Mr. Speaker:

I am sure all hon. members have learned with deep regret of the passing of the Hon. J. A. Glen, Speaker of the House of Commons from 1940 to 1945.

Mr. Glen was elected to the house first in 1926 as member of parliament for Marquette. He was defeated in the general election of 1930, but was re-elected in 1935, 1940 and 1945. In 1940 Mr. Glen was elected Speaker of the house, and in April, 1945, joined the cabinet of Right Hon. W. L. Mackenzie King as Minister of Mines and Resources. He was a good administrator and a faithful and loyal member of the government to which he belonged.

In 1948 Mr. Glen was appointed to the international joint commission, and he was chairman of the Canadian section at the time of his death.

Those of us who were here when Mr. Glen was Speaker recall the fair and impartial manner in which he presided over our deliberations. During the difficult days of the war he occupied, with dignity and in the best traditions of those who had gone before him, the position which I now hold.

Mr. Glen had not been well recently, but he endured his illness with a courage and fortitude which deeply impressed all who knew him. I know all hon. members will join with me in extending sincere sympathy to Mrs. Glen and her son.

Hon. Stuart S. Garson (Minister of Justice):

Mr. Speaker, as one who has had the very great honour of following the late Hon. J. Allison Glen in the constituency of Marquette, I want to say that the sentiments you have expressed will be echoed in the hearts and minds of those who knew him best in the

town of Russell and throughout Marquette constituency. From the time he went there as a solicitor to carry on the practice of law, having come to Canada as an immigrant from Scotland, he had the deep and well deserved respect of his fellow citizens, who even before he became a member of this house had honoured him with many positions of responsibility. In my experience in going about that constituency, no matter in what remote part I might be, I would always find the deepest regard and respect for the late Mr. Glen.

I am sure we all join with you in your expressions of sympathy to the family.

Mr. Speaker, I wish to associate myself, and the Social Credit group, with what has been said about the late Mr. Glen. I knew Mr. Glen from the time he first came to the house. Tn all the various activities in which he participated, he discharged to the full the responsibilities that were placed upon him. He was a good man, and he lived a good life. I am sure he will reap a good reward.

Mr. Higgins:

Mr. Speaker, on behalf of the province I should like to thank the minister for the statement he has just made. There is one particular point that has not been covered, and I would appreciate it if the minister would explain it. It concerns a statement attributed to him arising out of the conference with the chairman of the Newfoundland salt fish board, when Mr. Gushue permitted it to be announced that the conversion of sterling for the sale of up to 400,000 quintals of salt codfish was to be provided. Could the minister say anything about that?

Mr. Mayhew:

I had two objectives in view in making this statement today. One was that it would be made prior to consideration of my estimates, and anyone wanting to ask questions about it could ask them when the estimates are taken up; they could be answered with less delay. The other objective was, of course, the necessity for speedy action. If the hon. member will hold his question, I will answer it on my estimates.

Hon. L. B. Pearson (Secretary of State for External Affairs):

Mr. Speaker, the hon. member for Peel (Mr. Graydon) asked when it was the intention of the government to table the notes concerning relief credits to certain European countries. I wish to lay on the table three copies, in English and in French, of the exchange of notes with

Denmark, Yugoslavia, and Norway respectively. The agreement with The Netherlands was tabled on March 2 last.

I should also like to lay on the table fifteen documents, which are diplomatic instruments published in the Canada treaty series. Perhaps the list might appear in Votes and Proceedings, unless hon. members would wish me to read it now.
