Liberal

Mr. Pearson:

In answer to the first question of my hon. friend, as I understand it no action has been taken on the United Nations part to break off negotiations notwithstanding the refusal of the communists to accept this offer. I am sure we all hope that no such action will be taken or will be required.
In answer to the second question, I have not the figures at my command at the moment but I believe-this is subject to correction- that the great majority of the 62,000 are North Koreans.
