Mr. Donald W. Munro (Esquimalt-Saanich):

Mr. Speaker, I have a supplementary question with reference to our agreement to send a supervisory force to Viet Nam. Can the Secretary of State for External Affairs assure the House that during negotiations leading up to the ceasefire, in which we all rejoice, every effort has been made to secure the freedom of the Canadian missionary, Mr. Lloyd Oppel, who was taken prisoner in Laos last October and is now believed to be held near Hanoi?

Mr. Donald W. Munro (Esquimalt-Saanich):

being prepared for possible service in Viet Nam, would he assure the House that since that force, as the minister said in Hansard at page 474, will be a volunteer force those who do not volunteer will not be confronted with delays affecting their normal discharge or release?

Mr. Munro (Esquimalt-Saanich):

For purposes of clarification, would the minister assure the House that those who have not been selected for this assignment-I am not sure whether they are going to volunteer or be selected for the assignment-will be exempt from any penalties respecting their discharge or retirement?

Mr. Munro (Esquimalt-Saanich):

Can the Minister of National Defence inform the House whether the group that, according to information provided to the House within the past few days, is being prepared for a possible hasty departure to Viet Nam was formed as a result of voluntary option or selected by nomination from which there was no appeal? In other words, is it a volunteer or draft force?
