Right Hon. L. S. St. Laurent (Prime Minister):
Mr. Speaker, when speaking yesterday in connection with the remainder of the uncompleted order for Harvard training aircraft which had been approved last July I said that consideration was being given to whether there should be any interference by the government with the completion of this order and that a statement would be given to the house when a decision had been reached. I wish to inform the house that we have come to the conclusion that under circumstances as they exist the government would not be justified in interfering with the completion of this order.
