REMOVAL OF EMPLOYEES FROM WINNIPEG

LIB

Louis Stephen St-Laurent (Prime Minister; President of the Privy Council)

Liberal

Right Hon. L. S. St. Laurent (Prime Minister):

May I be allowed to answer a question put to me by the member for Winnipeg North Centre (Mr. Knowles) on Friday, concerning the possible removal of T.C.A. personnel from Winnipeg to Montreal? On Friday I received the night letters to which the hon. member referred, and I answered them as follows:

Your telegram re T.C.A. plans to move certain personnel to Montreal: may I call attention to following statement made in parliament on March 3 by Mr. Howe. "I remember distinctly reading a published statement by Mr. McGregor in which he said the move would not take place until October, 1949. That being so I hope we shall have a committee before that time." Notice for the setting up of a committee of the house to deal with accounts, estimates and bills relating to operations of T.C.A. has now been given. Committee expected to get under way almost at once and will have power to send for persons, papers and records and report from time to time. Plans of management and reasons therefor can be gone into and reported upon, and interested parties can appear or be represented to make proper investigation. In the meantime government would not feel justified in issuing directives to management. I trust that this public hearing will make clear what policy in regard to this matter will best serve the general interest of all concerned in the good administration of T.C.A.

Mr. Knowles:

May I just ask this question, so that the record may be complete? That is the telegram which the Prime Minister sent to the mayor of Winnipeg and also to the secretary of the chamber of commerce?

Lionel Chevrier (Minister of Transport)

Liberal

Mr. Chevrier:

This motion has to do with any reports received by the Department of Transport, the minister or any official of the department since January 1, 1946, relating to the efficiency of radio equipment and the adequacy of radio watch keeping on ships operated from Pacific coast ports. I understand it has been the practice and

the custom that all interdepartmental reports are privileged; but there may be-I have not had, as I would wish to have, the opportunity of consulting fully the file-a number of reports that were made by outside sources. There can be no objection to producing these, but as to interdepartmental reports, perhaps, in view of the practice in that regard, the hon. member will consent to their not being produced.

At the request of the minister I allowed this motion to stand for several days. Will the minister now be good enough to allow it to stand so that I may have a talk with him about what I want?
