Hon. Paul Marlin@Secretary of Slate for External Affairs

I had discussions last week with representatives of the British government and of the United States government. There is no basis for that story. I am sure the discussions which are taking place between the governments of Germany and the United States and between the government of Britain and the other two governments will result in arrangements which will not warrant the conclusion the hon. member has drawn.

Mr. Lambert:

This may be the interpretation the minister places on it, but it is certainly not the interpretation which is placed on it in other quarters.

Mr. Lambert:

In any event I will ask the minister whether consideration is being given by the Canadian government to the withdrawal of dependants from Europe as has been done, in fact, by the United States.

Mr. Martin (Essex East):

No, Mr. Speaker. And the answer to the preface to that question is that this is not an interpretation. I made a statement based upon information given by the governments concerned.

NATIONAL DEFENCE

FURTHER REFERENCE TO STATEMENTS BY CHIEF OF DEFENCE STAFF


On the orders of the day:


PC

Douglas Scott Harkness

Progressive Conservative

Hon. D. S. Harkness (Calgary North):

should like to ask the Prime Minister whether he condones the statement attributed to General Allard by the newspaper La Presse, a statement which impugns the honesty and motives of certain privy councillors who are members of this chamber. If he does not condone those statements, what disciplinary action does the right hon. gentleman propose to take to ensure that there will be no recurrence of this sort of thing?

Lester Bowles Pearson (Prime Minister)

Right Hon. L. B. Pearson (Prime Minister):

One of the statements attributed to General Allard has already been corrected by the Canadian Press which was the origin of the original report, and I think I should be very careful about commenting on other statements attributed to him until there is an opportunity to test the accuracy of the reports of those statements also.

I have a question to direct to the Minister of Agriculture. In the light of many representations made during the Easter recess by the

O.F.A. and the O.F.U. on the subject of the hon. gentleman's recent dairy policy announcement, will the minister say whether he is now prepared to amend that policy?

Mr. Greene:

I believe the statement made in the house speaks for itself. It is the entire statement, subject of course, to any action which the national dairy commission may take.

I have a supplementary question for the Minister of Agriculture. Will the minister soon be in a position to issue statements with the cheques which go out to individual farmers under the dairy policy?
