Liberal

1. I am informed by the C.B.C. that Captain Lacoste's application to broadcast over the
C.B.C. was considered in the same way as other similar applications and was declined. The qualifications of radio commentators are continuously reviewed and decisions taken in the light of assessment of suitability.
2. See answer to No. 1. Since the matter was solely for the C.B.C., there was no reference of the matter to the government and no action taken by the government.
