Mr. E. B. McKAY (Weyburn):

I wish to direct a question to the Minister of Finance, a copy of which I have forwarded to his office. When can the house expect an announcement of the pay and allowances increase for the uniformed and plain-clothes members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police?

Right Hon. J. L. ILSLEY (Minister of Justice):

The matter to which the hon. member refers has not yet gone before council for its decision. I expect to place it before council early next week. After that an announcement will be made, but following the practice as to announcements with regard to increases in the civil service, I expect it will be given to the press in the form of a press release rather than taking up the time of the house with it.

CRIMINAL CODE


On the orders of the day:


PC

Thomas Langton Church

Progressive Conservative

Mr. T. L. CHURCH (Broadview):

I wish to direct a question to the Minister of Justice. Will it be possible for him to bring in at an early day first reading of the bill to amend the criminal code? I notice that the Ontario legislature may be adjourning in a day or so, and there are several legal bills before it. In the Quebec legislature a bill has been introduced by their attorney general to appoint six additional superior court judges for that province, as well as other legal bills. Will the minister not have time between now and the Easter recess to introduce and have read for the first time the bill to amend the criminal code?

UNITED NATIONS


On the orders of the day: Mr. DONALD M. FLEMING (Eglinton): I wished to direct a question to the Secretary of State for External Affairs, but as he is not in his seat I might ask his parliamentary assistant to take note of it and bring it to his attention. When does the government intend to appoint and set up the national commission in relation to the united nations educational, scientific and cultural organization under the legislation that was passed two years ago?

Mr. R. R. KNIGHT (Saskatoon City):

I wish to direct to the Minister of Trade and Commerce a question of which he has received a copy. Are negotiations proceeding between the British timber board and the Canadian government with a view to making arrangements to facilitate the purchase by Britain of lumber now being prepared for shipment through the port of Churchill?

Clarence Decatur Howe (Minister of Trade and Commerce; Minister of Reconstruction and Supply)

Liberal

Right Hon. C. D. HOWE (Minister of Trade and Commerce):

I know of no such negotiations. I have not been advised that anyone desires to sell lumber to the British timber controller from that area. In any event the British timber controller makes his own arrangements for purchasing timber from Canada, the government acting only to facilitate his purchases.
