Hon. CHARLES MARCIL:
Mr. Speaker, will you allow me, on this motion, to ask a question of my hon. friend the Minister of Marine and Fisheries (Mr. Hazen) of some urgency to my constituency? I intended doing so yesterday, but the sudden adjournment of the House prevented me. It is regarding the issuing of licenses for salmon fishing in the tidal waters of Quebec. There is some doubt existing as to whether these licenses are to be issued by the provincial Government or by the Ottawa Government. Notices have appeared in the Canada Gazette and in the Quebec Gazette and I have received a number of letters on the point. I would ask the minister if he would kindly tell us how the matter stands.
Subtopic: QUEBEC FISHING LICENSES.
