Hon. George A. Drew (Leader of the Opposition):
Mr. Speaker, I should like to ask the Prime Minister if he is prepared to deal with the proposal I made a week ago that there be a debate on external affairs which would give us an opportunity for a coherent discussion of that subject following a statement by the Secretary of State for External Affairs (Mr. Pearson). It seems to me that events which have occurred since that time emphasize the desirability of a debate shortly after the termination of the debate on the address in reply to the speech from the throne.
