Hon. Donald M. Fleming (Minister of Finance):

Yesterday, Mr. Speaker, the hon. member for Bonavista-Twillingate asked if I would produce three illustrative tables which were laid before the recent dominion-provincial conference by the federal government. I now produce two copies of each of these three tables. If it is the wish of hon. members that these tables be inscribed in today's proceedings, there would be no objection to that course.

EDUCATION WEEK

PRESENCE IN GALLERY OF REPRESENTATIVE OF HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS

PC

Kenneth Hamill (Ken) More

Progressive Conservative

Mr. K. H. More (Regina City):

Mr. Speaker, on a matter of privilege I would ask, through you, the indulgence of the house at this time to bring to your attention a matter of great public importance in this country; that is, the observation throughout our country of Canadian education week. Under the auspices of the Canadian conference on education a student representative of our high school students in Canada, known as "Jimmy", has been chosen. His name is, in fact, James.

I would draw the attention of the house to this fine young citizen who I am very happy to report is from Moosomin, Saskatchewan, and who is in the gallery today. James Zon-dervon is a 15-year old farm boy from Moosomin, Saskatchewan who represents some 785,000 high school students in Canada. His example, and the example of the support we all give him this week, I hope will bring to the realization of our youth the necessity for the furthering of their education and the great advantages attending thereto.

Hon. L. B. Pearson (Leader of the Opposition):

Mr. Speaker, I would like to ask the Acting Prime Minister whether he has any comment to make on a statement attributed to the hon. member for Calgary South, a member of the Canadian delegation to the United Nations, to the effect that an approach should be made by Canada to Peking to find out the precise terms under which communist China would accept membership in the United Nations.

Howard Charles Green (Secretary of State for External Affairs)

Progressive Conservative

Hon. Howard C. Green (Acting Prime Minister):

Mr. Speaker, I presume this statement was made in the course of a speech, and it would be quite impossible for me to comment on the speeches made by different members of the house.

Mr. Pearson:

A supplementary question, Mr Speaker. Is the minister not aware that this particular member is a member of the Canadian delegation to the United Nations assembly that is now meeting, and that this puts his speech in a special category?

Howard Charles Green (Secretary of State for External Affairs)

Mr. Green:

Mr. Speaker, I cannot even comment on the speeches made here by the delegates to the United Nations. One of the hon. member's followers is a delegate and I would hate to have to comment on his speech.
