Mr. Howard C. Green (Vancouver-Quadra):
Mr. Speaker, I should like to direct to the Prime Minister a further question about the meeting in Bermuda between himself and Right Hon. Mr. Macmillan which is to take place the first of next week. Will not the Prime Minister reconsider the position which he took on March 19 that he himself would not raise the question of holding a conference of commonwealth prime ministers? Will the Prime Minister not go further and extend an invitation to hold the next commonwealth conference in Canada?
Right Hon. L. S. St. Laurent (Prime
Minister): Mr. Speaker, I think it may be that my language was not sufficiently clear, but I think the hon. gentleman rather misinterprets it. I did not say I would not raise the question, because I expected that question would be discussed. What I said was that I would not take the initiative in calling a meeting of the prime ministers. If the question is discussed we shall certainly discuss where the next meeting will be held, and I am sure we in Canada would feel honoured if the next meeting were held in Canada.
