March 27, 1945

Mr. G. E. WOOD (Brant):

Mr. Speaker, I rise to a question of privilege. The hon. member for Cape Breton South (Mr. Gillis) referred yesterday at page 218 of Hansard to a statement that I had made, the correctness of which he challenged. I based the observations to which he referred on words he used at page 171 of Hansard, when he said, as I heard it from1 this section of the house: "Any nation that becomes a member of the world court, the security council and the like, has to surrender its rights to handle its own affairs regardless of how they affect other nations of the world." Also on page 171, where he associates himself with the hon. member for Lake Centre (Mr. Diefenbaker), there is a quotation from section 5 of section B which I do not need to repeat, but which ends with these words:

The special agreement . . . should be in each case subject to approval by the security council and to ratification by the signatory states in accordance with their constitutional processes.

The remark that prefaced that was on page 171 of Hansard:

Personally I believe such a course is absolutely wrong.

That is what prompted me to make the remark I did.
