National Government

Mr. HANSON (York-Sunbury):

Before we leave this part of the proceedings may I ask the Prime Minister if the declarations given in the Hyde Park interview are all the commitments? I have been disturbed by reading an article in the Christian Science Monitor of last Thursday, which, if true,-and I do not suggest that the report is true; I do not know-indicates that the report given out by the President and the Prime Minister following the Hyde Park conference does not include the whole arrangement, but that it goes far beyond that announcement.
Perhaps the Prime Minister has not seen the newspaper report to which I refer, but it is a very significant statement. I should like to know whether there is any basis for it.
