Mr. Roland de Corneille (Eglinton-Lawrence):

Mr. Speaker, I have a question for the Secretary of State for External Affairs. Can the hon. lady tell the House whether the emissary extraordinary, or the extraordinary emissary to the Middle East, the Hon. Robert Stanfield, did indeed hold any public or clandestine meetings with representatives of the PLO before the PLO has met the two conditions which the Prime Minister laid down for relationships with, or recognition of that terrorist organization?
Further, if Mr. Stanfield has indeed had such meetings with the PLO, has he discussed with the PLO any topics other than the moving of the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, and has he made any undertakings to continue further contacts with the PLO?
