Mr. T. J. BENTLEY (Swift Current):

Mr. Speaker may I direct a question to the Minister of Public Works of which I have given him notice? In view of the statement made yesterday by the Minister of Agriculture (Mr. Gardiner) is the Minister of Public Works prepared to say that he will grant permission for the Saskatchewan government to proceed with the building of a low level bridge across the South Saskatchewan river at Saskatchewan Landing?

Hon. ALPHONSE FOURNIER (Minister of Public Works):

I have prepared a submission recommending to council approval of the site and plans for that proposed bridge. I have not yet presented it to council because I am awaiting a telegram from the Premier of Saskatchewan indicating whether he will accept the conditions contained in that submission as to the protection of navigation and future works that may be done on the Saskatchewan river.

Hon. J. J. McCANN (Minister of National Revenue):

Mr. Speaker, yesterday on the

orders of the day the hon. member for Cape Breton South (Mr. Gillis) asked a question about margarine and I have since had the opportunity of reading his remarks in Hansard. He asked whether certain sections of the public were immune from the law in respect to the importation of oleomargarine. I assure him and the house that no section of the public is immune from the law in this respect. The prohibition of the importation of this commodity imposed by tariff item 1204 is still in effect.

William Irvine

Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (C.C.F.)

Mr. WILLIAM IRVINE (Cariboo):

I

should like to address a question either to the Prime Minister or to the Minister of

[Mr. Knowles.)

Transport. Perhaps it would be better to address it to the Prime Minister, because he is on record in regard to this question. Is it the intention of the government to do anything this year toward the building of the Peace river outlet?

My hon. friend is quite

correct in saying that I am on record-I do not know how many years ago it was; but I can assure him the Minister of Transport has had the matter under consideration.

Mr. G. A. CRUICKSHANK (Fraser Valley):

I should like to direct a question to one of the ministers. I cannot direct it to a particular minister because I do not know under which department it comes. Is it the intention to expand the facilities of Abbotsford airport?

Hon. LIONEL CHEVRIER (Minister of Transport):

I take responsibility for the

Mr. CRUICKSHANK:

I might be permitted to complete my question. The department is purchasing further property in connection with this airport, but at the present time it is standing idle. I should like to know what use is to be made of the present facilities and why further extension is contemplated when no use is made of the airport.
