Mr. Speaker:

I made certain remarks a moment ago suggesting that members should abide by the rules especially when the Speaker brings the rules to the attention of the house. May I suggest to the hon. member that he put his question as briefly as possible.

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

Liberal

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

The Prime Minister has taken very little responsibility in arranging the itinerary of the visit of Their Royal Highnesses. This has been discussed by a committee that was set up to confer with the secretary of Her Royal Highness, Princess Elizabeth. I am sure that she has endeavoured to do everything she felt was possible to make her visit to Canada an occasion that would be pleasant to as many of our Canadian population as it would be possible for her to see. I am sorry that there are Canadians who, because of circumstances, have not been able to see Their Royal Highnesses, but I think that is inevitable in a country the size of Canada with the short time that was available to Their Royal Highnesses for their visit.

Mr. St. Laurent:

None whatsoever. The time available for their visit has been apportioned in consultation with them, and I know that they have been most anxious to make arrangements that would be satisfactory to the greatest possible number of Canadians.

QUESTION AS TO INCREASE IN SALARY

LIB

Stuart Sinclair Garson (Solicitor General of Canada; Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada)
