Mr. SPEAKER:

I would ask the hon.

gentleman to bear in mind the rules of the house in regard to asking questions. No hon. member is more familiar with the rules in that respect than my hon. friend. He knows that what he has added to his question is not proper, and I would ask him to be good enough to observe the rules when asking questions.

Mr. THOMAS REID (New Westminster):

I should like to direct a question to the Prime Minister (Mr. Bennett). Has the attention of the government been directed to the terrible destruction which occurred recently in British Columbia due to a storm in that province, with damage amounting to approximately $2,COO,000? If so, is the government considering the advisability of rendering some financial assistance to those who have been affected?

Olof Hanson

Mr. OLOF HANSON (Skeena):

I should

like to ask the Minister of Marine (Mr. Duranleau) if any steps have been taken by the radio commission to ensure better radio reception in central and northern British Columbia. The minister is familiar with the problem; in that territory it is impossible to hear any Canadian broadcasts. According to my information some steps have been taken to improve that condition, and I should like the minister to say what has been done.
