Jamieson faces barrage of queries OTTAWA (CP) In the wake of the first successful hijacking of a Canadian jet, Transport Minister Don Jamieson was the target Tuesday for a welter of Commons charges and ques- tions. When the dust had settled, the minister, backed'by the Liberal majority, had withstood a Con- servative motion challenging his veracity and stuck to his guns about the existence and opera- tion of such devices ;5 metal detectors to screen passenger baggage at Canadian airports. There are such devices in use, Mr. Jamieson said, repeating in essence a statement he made to the House in November, but he would not say how many or where because this could endan- ger the travelling public. An American armed with a revolver and grenades pulled Canada's first successful hijack- ing Sunday, taking an Air Can- ada DC-9 to Cuba. James A. McGrath (PC-St. John's East) claimed informa- tion in his possession showed that, contrary to Mr. Jamie- son's statement to the House Nov. 18, no protective devices were in operation at Canadian airports. The motion called on the min- ister to make a statement today clarifying the situation and the doubts they raised about his "veracity and competence." It needed unanimous consent and this was vociferously denied by the Liberals. Jack Homer then made a motion that the House drop further business and rise until today, when the minis- ter would have a chance to "set the record straight." To Liberal hoots, the Conserv- atives forced a formal vote on this one. They were swamped 103 to 41, the 33 Conservatives present getting support only from seven Social Credit members and John Skoberg Jaw) while the 92 Liberals present were backed by 15 NDP members and an Independent. Standing in the '264-seat Com- mons: Liberals 150, Conserva- tives 71, NDP 25, Social Credit 13, Independent two, Independ- ent Liberal one, vacant U-o. When the daily question pe- riod was on, Mr. McGrath re- turned to the hijack question.
