Right Hon. L. S. St. Laurent (Prime Minister):

Possibly I should answer that

question. When it becomes the intention of the government to set up a radio committee, an announcement will be made in the house.

May I say to the Prime Minister that private members should not announce radio policy outside of this parliament.

Mr. St. Laurent:

It may perhaps be the privilege of the hon. member for Lake Centre to lecture other private members; it is not mine.

PUBLIC SERVICE

REQUEST FOR IMPROVED PARKING FACILITIES IN OTTAWA


On the orders of the day:


PC

Gordon Knapman Fraser

Progressive Conservative

Mr. G. K. Fraser (Peterborough West):

I should like to direct a question to the Minister of Public Works. Owing to the scarcity of parking space for civil servants and employees of the government, would it be possible to use the excavated dirt and other material that is being taken from the site of the new veterans affairs building and use it at the back of the confederation building to make parking space, instead of hauling all this material over to Hull?

Hon. Alphonse Fournier (Minister of Public Works):

It may be possible to comply with the request made by the hon. member; but

having received no notice of his question,

I shall have to look into the matter further and give a proper answer later during the session.

UNITED NATIONS

REFERENCE TO PRESS REPORT OF ADDRESS OF MR. MARTIN AT LAKE SUCCESS


On the orders of the day:


PC

Thomas Langton Church

Progressive Conservative

Mr. T. L. Church (Broadview):

Has the

attention of the government been called to the report in this morning's Ottawa Citizen of a speech made yesterday by the Minister of National Health and Welfare (Mr. Martin), who is second in command of the Canadian delegation to the United Nations at Lake Success? Speaking to students of the university of Montreal international relations club, who were visiting United Nations headquarters at Lake Success, the minister said that the United Nations "will gradually assume legislative character," and that "the International Court of Justice will assume responsibilities similar to those held by national supreme courts." Does this represent government policy, or not?

I am sorry, Mr. Speaker, but though I did my best, I could not hear the hon. member's question. I shall have to read it in Hansard, and then I will attempt to give him an answer.
