Progressive Conservative

Mr. JOHN BRACKEN (Leader of the Opposition):

Mr. Speaker, I am sure all hon. members will wish to associate themselves with the minister in the statement he has just made. It has been the privilege of some of us, with many members of the government,
to have been acquainted with Jan Masaryk and to know something of what he was trying to do for his country. As the minister has said, the son of a great patriot of Czechoslovakia was trying to serve his country in the footsteps of his father. We not only regret the circumstances which have brought about his death, but we sincerely regret the event itself. On behalf of my associates I wish to join with the minister in the statement he has made in extending our sympathy to that nation in the loss of this great man.
