National Government

Mr. GRAYDON:

They certainly have an age-old atmosphere.
Mr. ST. LAURENT: With respect to the appointment of judges I have tried to make satisfactory appointments, and quite frankly I have been rather proud of the comments I have received about most of the appointments to the high courts in the several provinces that it has been my privilege to recommend. I may say to the hon. member for Lake Centre (Mr. Diefenbaker) that a large number of the recommendations it has been my privilege to sign were in respect of gentlemen-but this did not have any effect upon it-who, I am told, were at one time or another connected with another party than that of the present administration.

Topic:   EXCHEQUER COURT ACT
Subtopic:   AMENDMENT TO PROVIDE FOR APPOINTMENT OF THIRD JUDGE
