Liberal

Mr. Marler:

Mr. Speaker, I think that question involves the regulations of the country in which the plane would be compelled to land. I think I should tell the hon. member that practically all the western nations permit aircraft to land when they are in distress. I take it, however, that entry into that country is provided for by its own immigration laws.
