Hon. Michael Starr (Ontario):

I wish to address a question to the Minister of Manpower and Immigration. I first put this question to him some days ago in view of charges which had been made by recently arrived immigrants that the information given to them by immigration offices outside this country was false, and that they had not found the situation here the same as that which had been described to them. Has an investigation been made of these charges, and is the minister prepared to make a statement either agreeing with them or refuting them?

Mr. Starr:

In view of the fact that not one but quite a number of immigrants have made the same charge in connection with information given them by the immigration officers, does the minister not think an investigation should be undertaken as a basis for directing these officers not to give out false information?

As a supplementary question, Mr. Speaker, can the minister tell us in a few words what precisely is the function of his department?

Mr. Starr:

I wonder whether there is a disposition on the part of the committee to sit for a while longer and pass these estimates of the Department of Defence Production in

view of the fact that getting answers from the minister has proved to be a hopeless task. Apparently we will not get any answers anyway.

Hon. Michael Slarr (Ontario):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to address a question to the Secretary of State for External Affairs. On March 11 I asked the minister whether, in view of the serious situation of the children of Viet Nam and their plight as a result of the war, the United Nations or some agency of that body was giving consideration to evacuating these children from the war area. In reply the minister stated that he would make an examination to see whether this is being considered. Has the minister made this examination and is he able to advise me on this matter?
