National Government

Mr. GORDON GRAYDON (Leader of the Opposition):

On Wednesday last a question was raised by the hon, member for iRosetown-Biggar (Mr. Coldwell) in regard to certain charges by Andrew D. Maclean, retired commander, R.C.N.VR., entitled "Fairmiles and Foul". At that time the Prime Minister intimated he might have a statement to make with respect to the matter. One of my reasons for calling the attention of the Prime Minister to the question arises from a letter I received yesterday from a parent of a sub-lieutenant in the Canadian navy, who expressed grave concern oyer the charges made in this article. Is the Prime Minister in a position now to make some statement? I think the matter is sufficiently serious and urgent to warrant some comment being made by the government.
