Hon. R. B. HANSON (Leader of the Opposition):
Mr. Speaker, I am sure the house and the country will be obliged to the Prime Minister for the statement which he has just made. I have no desire to make any addition to it. My mind has been running along the same channels as his statement indicates ever since we heard the announcement. I should like, however, to ask the government whether any consideration has been given to Canadian participation in the battle of the near east.
