PERMANENT COURT OF INTERNATIONAL JUSTICE


On the order for government notices of motion:


LIB

William Lyon Mackenzie King (Prime Minister; President of the Privy Council; Secretary of State for External Affairs)

Liberal

Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Prime Minister):

May I say that the first two resolutions under government notices of motion are more or less formal matters? If hon. gentlemen would like to have them stand over until later I have no objection; otherwise I think it would be well to proceed with them at once.

Henri-Edgar Lavigueur

Liberal

Mr. LAVIGUEUR:

I would like to hear

from the hon. Minister of Health (Mr. King) as to whether or not it is his intention to remedy this grievance by putting Quebec upon the list of ports where good water may be obtained. The Canadian Pacific Railway is using our water now.

James Horace King (Minister of Pensions and National Health)

Liberal

Hon. J. H. KING (Minister of Pensions and National Health):

Mr. Speaker, under

an international agreement we, as a department, are supposed to protect the water supply on the inland waters, and on international waters adjoining Canada. Through the provincial government laboratories in Ontario and in Quebec, the water supply used by shipping on the St. Lawrence and on the great lakes is tested. We have been fortunate in having checked any typhoid outbreaks aboard these ships. On April 30 of this year we advised the shipping companies that good water could be secured at Montreal, Levis, Lauzon and Three Rivers, these ports being on the St. Lawrence. The Quebec government had advised us that the water at Quebec contained a large number of colon baccili and was not considered to be safe water to be used by the steamships.
