EXTERNAL AID

STATEMENT RESPECTING PREFERENCE IN WORLD BANK LOANS


On the orders of the day:


PC

Robert Lorne Stanfield (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Progressive Conservative

Hon. Robert L. Stanfield (Leader of the Opposition):

Mr. Speaker, I would like to direct a question to the Acting Prime Minister, who I am delighted to see in the house 29180-451

Inquiries of the Ministry apparently unbruised after returning from hostile territory. Could the hon. gentleman say whether the Minister of Finance was speaking for the government of Canada when he specifically endorsed Robert McNamara's plan to give first preference for world bank loans to countries which are willing to bring in programs of population control; and will the Acting Prime Minister say whether the Minister of Finance was stating the official policy of the government of Canada and of the Department of External Affairs?

Hon. Paul Hellyer (Minister of Transport):

Mr. Speaker, I have not had an opportunity to see or read what the Minister of Finance said, but certainly he is there representing the government of Canada and in the statements he would make in respect to those matters under his jurisdiction, including financial matters of various sorts, he would be speaking on behalf of the government of Canada.

Mr. Hellyer:

I would not want to comment specifically without having a chance to see it, but I am sure the Minister of Finance, who is a most responsible and alerted minister, would not say anything that was not completely in accordance with government policy.

Mr. Stanfield:

In view of this being the apparent policy of the government of Canada with regard to world bank loans, could the Acting Prime Minister indicate whether the government intends to apply this policy to Canada's own policy of foreign aid?

Mr. Hellyer:

No, I am not in a position to comment, Mr. Speaker, but this is not a new question. It is one which has been raised from time to time throughout the years. It has been commented on by U. Thant, Secretary General of the United Nations, and is a matter of real concern to many people in many parts of the world.
