Right Hon. J. G. Diefenbaker (Leader of the Opposition):
Mr. Speaker, I should like to direct a question to the Secretary of State for External Affairs, and ask him whether he has noted that the figures now accepted in the United Kingdom in the Manchester Guardian, and in the United States in the weekend issue of the New York Times, are that some 4,000 Greek troops clandestinely landed in Cyprus. Is he now in a position to place before the house and the country the record in this regard, as shown to be confirmed in the United Kingdom and in the United States, under the circumstances and in the periodicals referred to? Will he also tell the house what transpired during the call on him by the Turkish ambassador on Friday afternoon, and was there on the part of the Turkish ambassador anything in the nature of a diplomatic protest?
