Mr. W. E. HARRIS (Parliamentary Assistant to the Secretary of State for External Affairs):
Mr. Speaker, last week the hon. member for Wetaskiwin (Mr. Jaques) asked this question, as reported at page 2804 of Hansard:
Will the government consider the advisability of prohibiting the soliciting of funds in Canada for the purpose of supplying these Zionists with arms and ammunition?
I am asked to make this answer. Arms and ammunition cannot be exported from Canada without an export permit, and no export permits have been granted for the shipment of arms and ammunition to Palestine. Nor is exchange authorization given for the transfer of funds from Canada to purchase arms and ammunition abroad for shipment to Palestine. Therefore the government does not consider it necessary at the present time to take the action suggested.
