Order. May I draw to the attention of hon. members the presence in the Speaker's gallery of the very distinguished Speaker of the Indian lower house, the L6k Sabha, Dr. the Hon. N. Sanjiva Reddy. Mr. Speaker Reddy is on his first official visit to Canada and is accompanied by the eminent secretary general of the Lok Sabha, Mr. S. L. Shakdher. Hon. members will be pleased to know that Mr. Speaker Reddy will be with us as our guest until his departure on Friday morning for the commonwealth parliamentary conference in the West Indies. In the intervening period I hope that as many hon. members as possible will be able to meet our guests. I might draw to the attention of all hon. members the fact that a reception has been arranged for this purpose tonight at 6 p.m. in the railway committee room.

I know, Mr. Speaker, that all hon. members would want me to say on their behalf that we are indeed deeply honoured by this visit from such a distinguished parliamentarian from our great commonwealth partner in India, a country that shares with us all our traditions of parliamentary democracy.

Jean-Luc Pepin (Minister of Industry; Minister of Trade and Commerce)

Liberal

Hon. Jean-Luc Pepin (Minister of Industry, Trade and Commerce):

The Canadian Corporation for the 1967 World Exhibition reports that: 1. Informal verbal requests were received from Japan and other countries to set up amateur radio stations at Expo.

2. The exhibition corporation did not encourage these requests because: (a) it was felt that if amateur stations were set up by one or two nations, there would be many other similar requests and (b) this would result in a proliferation of unsightly aerials. The Japanese representatives recognized the good sense of these arguments and, therefore, did not make a formal request.
