Right Hon. J. G. Diefenbaker (Leader of the Opposition):
Mr. Speaker, I should like to direct a question to the Prime Minister relating to a statement which he allegedly made during a visit to his constituency and Elliot Lake regarding the uranium deal with France, to the effect that this deal is now in danger of falling through because of failure to obtain the right of inspection by Canada of the uses to which the uranium supplied by Canada could be put. I should like to ask him about this situation because of the doubts which have arisen, and because of his statement that if the deal should fall through the Government would continue stockpiling.
