Mr. R. Gordon L. Fairweather@Royal

Mr. Speaker, I should like to direct a question to the Secretary of State for External Affairs. The Minister dismissed somewhat summarily the question asked by the hon. Member for Kootenay West, and I think the Minister will recognize that it is hard for those of us who are not privy to the information he has available to him to keep up with events in this part of the hemisphere. I am wondering whather the Minister could give us the authentic latest news on the Dominican Republic.

Mr. Speaker, I have a question supplementary to that asked by the hon. Member for Royal. Is the Minister or his Department receiving any information on this subject from Washington?

Mr. Martin (Essex East):

Yes, Mr. Speaker.

In addition to our own staff normally resident at the mission in the Dominican Republic we have asked one of our own people in Ottawa to go to the Dominican Republic, and he has been there now for a matter of days. We are in continuous telephonic communication with him, and we are following events there with great concern.

Mr. T. C. Douglas (Burnaby-Coquitlam):

Mr. Speaker, may I direct a question to the Prime Minister respecting the suggestion he made in Regina last night, and ask him whether the House may now assume it is the Government's intention to remove any discrimination which may exist with respect to solution mining of potash as compared with shaft mining operations?

Mr. Douglas:

As a supplementary question, in view of the fact that the Premier of Saskatchewan has stated that neither he nor his ministers have been able to get any explanation from the Government as to why this discrimination does exist, would the Prime Minister undertake himself to give, or have the Minister of Finance give an explanation to the House, which we have never had?

Mr. R. Gordon L. Fairweather@Royal

As

a supplementary question, Mr. Speaker, I wonder if the Prime Minister did in fact use the word "ingrate" when referring to the Premier of Saskatchewan. How ungrateful does one have to be to be awarded this classification by the Prime Minister?

Mr. Pearson:

No, Mr. Speaker, I did not use that word. It is a term I seldom use in any connection, and certainly not in regard to any discussions I had with the Premier of Saskatchewan or his cabinet, discussions which were very friendly, very helpful and very constructive.
