Right Hon. J. G. Diefenbaker (Leader of the Opposition):
Mr. Speaker, I should like to ask the Prime Minister whether the Canadian Press dispatch is correct when it says, "Canada today committed its eight-squadron air division in Europe to a NATO nuclear command." The article points out that speeches were made by the Secretary of State for External Affairs (Mr. Martin) and the Minister of National Defence (Mr. Hellyer), that the subject was the projected interallied nuclear force, and the commitment of the Canadian air units to NATO was agreed to.
