Mr. Bradeiie:

The article goes on:

What is the matter with letting one dictator fight another dictator, if thereby he is promoting the ultimate triumph of democracies? The curbing of Stalin is more important that the ostracising of Franco.

Among some of the western allies there is a vigorous aversion to accepting troops from Franco.

External Affairs

Why is there an aversion? Somebody said: "Hear, hear". Who said "hear, hear"? I would like to have his name so it would be on the record. Why should1 there be "hear, hear" against Franco because he tried to save his own nation from devastation, from anarchy, from death, and who should be criticizing him on that score? May I put this question to you parliamentarians? What was the alternative during the insurrection? To let the communists run rampant in the peninsula so that eventually they would overrun the whole of Europe, or to allow Franco, who was and is a true Spaniard, to revive and to recuperate that nation from the hand of communism and from the hands of Moscow? I continue with the article:

The American reply might well be:

Very well, if you will not take six divisions from Franco to help save Europe from a totalitarianism infinitely worse than Franco's, why, then, you will surely not expect Americans to fill the gap thus caused. You will surely then raise six new additional divisions from among yourselves.

That is all I want to say on this matter. I thank the house for its kind attention. I know you realize that what I have said to you I have given in all sincerity, because I do not believe myself in persecution of any kind. I believe in the free play of all the people, in the true respect of all they profess and cherish no matter who they are, and I know you believe me when I make this appeal to you. When I hear of persecution of any race, of any religion, pagan or otherwise, then I know that in those nations something is absolutely wrong which should not be tolerated, and that we should see that it does not go on permanently, or else it will spread like wildfire.

Before resuming my seat I just want to bring a personal touch to what I have said. A few days ago I had the great honour of being re-appointed as a member of the standing committee on external affairs. I appreciate that honour, which carries with it some very heavy responsibilities, but they are pleasant ones to perform because of the fine co-operation and support that I have received from every member of that committee, no matter to which party they belonged.

I say to the hon. member for Peel (Mr. Graydon) that I hope he will find it possible again, as in previous years, ever since the inception of the committee on external affairs, to act as our vice-chairman.
