Mr. HOWE:

The board is not in business; it buys nothing and sells nothing. It is advisory to the minister. It seems perfectly nonsensical that such a provision should be inserted, when the only thing a member could sell would probably be pencils and stationery- and even those come from the king's printer. We should not be absurd about this.

The minister has not

answered my question with regard to an air route from Canada to Australia and New Zealand. Can he give us any further information on that?

Mr. GREEN:

I should imagine that in connection with investigation and surveys assistance by way of technical help and

Aeronautics Act

engineers would be required. Can the minister say what plans he has in mind in that connection?

Mr. HOWE:

The air services branch of the Department of Transport has highly trained technicians who could assist the board, and doubtless the board will be able to obtain any technical assistance it needs from within the department.

Mr. HOWE:

If necessary, but it is not believed it will be necessary. The board is more a planning board. If technical work is to be done, the resources of the department will be at hand.

Mr. HOWE:

I am suggesting that this section be amended by inserting the following as paragraph (i) after paragraph (h):

Prescribe maximum hours and other working conditions for pilots and co-pilots employed by any air carrier.

The remaining paragraphs will be relettered (j), (k) and (1).

Mr. KNOWLES:

The amendment seems to be one that will be particularly welcome. There does not seem to be much chance of this bill being completed to-night, and I wonder if the minister would allow this to stand as a notice so that it may be dealt with the next time the bill is in committee.

Mr. HOWE:

I was hopeful that the bill would pass, because unfortunately I must be away on business next week. It is a simple amendment I am proposing, which permits the board to make specific regulations to deal with working hours for pilots and co-pilots.
