Hon. Lionel Chevrier (Laurier):
Mr. Speaker, may I direct a question to the Prime Minister. In the light of the agreement made between the Prime Minister and the premier of Japan last June for a Japanese-Canadian ministerial committee, can the Prime Minister tell the house what is holding up the first meeting of this committee?
Right Hon. J. G. Diefenbaker (Prime
Minister): Mr. Speaker, nothing is holding up the first meeting. Consideration has been given to this question, the determination of which depends on meeting and accommodating both sides. My hope is that it will be possible for such a meeting to be held in the month of January.
