Robert James Manion (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. MANION:

Not to get information, but to make Hahn representative of the government of Canada; to enable Hahn to go inin the words of the high commissioner-"as representative of the Canadian government" to get "access to information of a secret nature which normally is not given to other than government officials." That was the point, and it is clear. The Prime Minister has been jumping up from his seat-I have watched him rise about fifteen times-to contradict and to try to get out from under. Why, if there is not something wrong with the contract, is the Prime Minister continually trying to get out from under?
