Mr. Angus Maclnnis (Vancouver East):
Mr. Speaker, I should like to direct a question to the Secretary of State for External Affairs. It is based on a news item appearing in yesterday's Ottawa Journal. If you will allow me, I should like to summarize it very briefly. Its purport is that General Matthew B. Ridgway said yesterday that it would be a tremendous victory for the United Nations if the Korean war should end at the 38th parallel, but he knows of no plan for hostilities to end there. I should like to ask the Secretary of State for External Affairs if the Canadian government has discussed this matter of the United Nations forces again crossing the 38th parallel, and if it has, will he make a statement to the house?
