Lester Bowles Pearson (Secretary of State for External Affairs)

Liberal

Mr. Pearson:

The report that a conference is about to be convened in Geneva of users of the canal is not accurate. I saw it in the newspapers myself and I made inquiries and was informed no such conference had been called. The discussion is still proceeding on behalf of the users, principally through the United States government which is keeping in touch with other interested governments, including the Canadian government, on this matter.
