Mr. David MacDonald (Egmont):
I have a supplementary question, Mr. Speaker, related to the announcement yesterday concerning the nuclear test at Amchitka. It is unfortunate the Prime Minister is not present today. I wonder whether the Secretary of State for External Affairs would like to correct the record with regard to what was said concerning the impracticability of making any further protest against these tests in light of the announcement by the chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission in the United States indicating that the device could be made harmless at any time before the actual detonation some time next week. Further, is the minister in receipt of a telegram from the General Council of the United Church asking that a final appeal be made to the United States government by the Canadian government?
