Mr. Alistair Stewart (Winnipeg North):

should like to direct a question to the Secretary of State for External Affairs. Is the minister prepared to present for discussion at the next NATO council meeting at which he is present the resolution unanimously adopted by the NATO parliamentarians' conference asking for the convening of an Atlantic conference similar to that held at The Hague in 1948?

Mr. Alistair Stewart (Winnipeg North):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to direct a question to the Minister of Citizenship and Immigration. Perhaps it is rather a pertinent one, in view of the fact that there is a trade delegation here from Jamaica.

In view of the government's high regard for the commonwealth, is the minister prepared to change the regulations of the late Liberal government concerning the immigration of British subjects from the West Indies, regulations which were so outrageously racialist?

Mr. Alistair Stewart (Winnipeg North):

Mr. Speaker, I am happy to say that the minister will have the complete support of the members of this group in this action which is not only generous but wise. One of the most serious difficulties in the Middle East is this problem of the refugees, and I am glad to see that their misery is going to be mitigated to some extent by the generosity of the Canadian people.
