Mr. H. O. While (Middlesex East):

Mr. Speaker. I would like to direct a question to the Secretary of State for External Affairs.

My question arises out of an article in this morning's Montreal Gazette which is headlined "Nasser caught in own ruse".

Will the government review its current foreign aid program in the light of apparent double-talk going on in Egypt and elsewhere?

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

Mr. Speaker, our foreign aid program is covered by the United Nations arrangements for technical and other assistance and the Colombo plan. These two matters are continually under review and I do not think there is any necessity for carrying that review further at this time.

Mr. J. G. Diefenbaker (Prince Albert):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to direct a question to the Secretary of State for External Affairs and ask him if he is now in a position to comment upon the fantastic statement made by Mr. Armstrong of the securities and exchange commission of the United States to the effect that Canada is being used as a base for the infiltration of communist investment in United States corporations, particularly those manufacturing secret material?

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

Mr. Speaker, we have made inquiries of all departments and branches of the Canadian government in order to ascertain whether any complaint has been received by any agency in connection with this matter and the advice is that no such complaint or inquiry has been received from Washington. It seems a little surprising that the chairman of the securities and exchange commission, if he has any anxiety in regard to this subject, should not take it up through the appropriate channels with the Canadian government at the same time he mentioned the matter to the internal security subcommittee of the United States Senate.
