Has the minister had an

opportunity to give attention to the request I made a short time ago to have the union jack replaced over the Pont Credit post office?

I have had complaints about the condition that flag has been in for some time.

Mir. POULIOT:

I thank the minister 'or the help he gave me last year in the way of work done in my constituency, but I regret that quite often reports are delayed by the engineers in the Quebec branch. I hope that in future they will be more careful and will not suggest putting timber on rotten boards, as they have done in the past.
