Sidney Earle Smith (Secretary of State for External Affairs)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Smith (Haslings-Frontenac):

All I can

say to the Leader of the Opposition is that it is still in process, and I re-emphasize what I endeavoured to say the other day, that no one in the house knows better than the man who held the portfolio I now hold the time and care it takes to prepare a document of this kind.

Mr. Pearson:

Does the Secretary of State for External Affairs not realize that in the past in his department agreements of this kind were made before action was taken, and not afterward?

Hon. Lionel Chevrier (Laurier):

May I

Edmund Davie Fulton (Minister of Citizenship and Immigration; Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada)

Progressive Conservative

Hon. E. D. Fulton (Minister of Justice):

The hon. gentleman will realize that appointments to the position of chief justice are within the province of the Prime Minister. Without consulting the records I am not certain exactly what the position is with regard to the chief justice of Ontario, and I would prefer to wait until the Prime Minister returns.

CCF

Frederick Samuel Zaplitny

Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (C.C.F.)

Mr. F. S. Zaplitny (Dauphin):

May I direct a question to the Minister of Trade and Commerce which does not involve an order in council. Since the minister's visit to the United Kingdom has he taken any steps with regard to the proposal of that country to Canada for the establishment of a free trade area?

Gordon Minto Churchill (Minister of Trade and Commerce)

Hon. Gordon Churchill (Minisier of Trade and Commerce):

Mr. Speaker, this question has been raised in the past. It is repetitious. I do not know whether the rules of the house are being observed when repetitious questions are being asked so frequently.

Gordon Minto Churchill (Minister of Trade and Commerce)

Mr. Churchill:

I have pointed out on other occasions that the whole question of expanding Canada's trade is being very carefully examined. The trade mission to the United Kingdom was a step in that direction, and proved to be highly successful.
