Hon. Paul Martin (Essex East):
I should like to direct a question to the Acting Secretary of State for External Affairs in the absence of the minister. Notice of this question was sent to the minister's office this morning. Has any agreement been reached between the government of the United States and the government of Canada or any agency or person thereof that would ensure the delivery to Canada of nuclear weapons either before or after the outbreak of war?
Right Hon. J. G. Diefenbaker (Prime
Minister): Mr. Speaker, the answer is in the negative.
Subtopic: USE OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS IN EVENT OF WAR- AGREEMENT WITH U.S.
