Mr. E. J. YOUNG (Weyburn):

Mr. Speaker, I would call the attention of the Postmaster General (Mr. Veniot) to Hansard of Thursday, April 7. At page 2031 he is reported as saying :

During the recess a thorough investigation will be made with a view to devising some scheme by which we can give greater protection to our newspapers and periodicals in competition with American publications.

Was the hon. minister correctly reported? If so, how far will he be iprepared to go in that direction?

Hon. P. J. VENIOT (Postmaster General):

My reference to protection was not in the sense that pefhaps my hon. friend understands it. What I was referring to was the protection o'f our newspaper publishers and dealers against the influx o'f American newspapers and periodicals of a nature such as was discussed on that occasion-that is, detrimental to the morals of our youth.
