Mr. J. A. MacLean (Queens):

Mr. Speaker,

I would like to address a question to the Minister of Citizenship and Immigration.

Inquiries of the Ministry

Would the minister clarify the situation regarding the subject matter of a news report from Washington, D.C., to the effect that a group of Old Order Amish settlers from the United States who had planned to buy farms and settle in Prince Edward Island have had their applications for entry into Canada rejected?

Hon. J. W. Pickersgill (Minister of Citizenship and Immigration):

As far as I know there has been no such group. There was an individual case of one of these people who was not able to satisfy the immigration requirements.

HUNGARIAN REFUGEES

INQUIRY AS TO RETURN TO HOMELAND


On the orders of the day:


PC

Joseph Warner Murphy

Progressive Conservative

Mr. J. W. Murphy (Lamblon West):

I think my question is quite timely in view of the publicity in the United States that several refugees from Hungary have been returned. May I ask the Minister of Citizenship and Immigration if any of these immigrants to Canada have been returned and, if so, how many and for what reason?

Hon. J. W. Pickersgill (Minister of Citizenship and Immigration):

No, sir. We gave an undertaking we would not return any of these people to Austria, and it is the custom of the present government of Canada to keep its word.

GORDON COMMISSION REPORT


On the orders of the day:


PC

Edmund Davie Fulton

Progressive Conservative

Mr. E. D. Fulton (Kamloops):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to ask the Minister of Justice if he has yet had time to consider that portion of the Gordon commission report which suggests that further study be given to the whole question of combines legislation and if so whether he has had an opportunity to make a decision and whether it is likely that some such inquiry will be made in the near future.

Mr. Erhart Regier (Burnaby-Coquitlam):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to direct a question to the Minister of Justice and I regret not having sent him notice of my intention to do so, although I do not think he will need

[Mr. MacLean.l

it. Could the minister report any progress on his efforts to prevent juvenile offenders from being sentenced to Canadian penitentiaries and also can he report any progress or advise as to the present status of the Clifford Williams case?

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

Liberal

Hon. Stuart S. Garson (Minister of Justice):

Well, Mr. Speaker, in dealing with the second question first I might say the Clifford Williams case, in view of the representations which have been made, has been under almost constant consideration by my colleague the Solicitor General since the matter was raised in this house and I believe that Mr. Williams will be released as soon as his degree of rehabilitation warrants that course.

With regard to the first question, I think I should take my hon. friend's question as notice.
