should like to address a question to the Minister of Agriculture. In order to use the present surplus of butterfat, is the minister or his department considering the lifting of the restriction on butterfat content of ice cream, which is now only 10-5 per cent and should be considerably higher?

PENALTY FOR EVASION

Mr. Clarence Gillis (Cape Breton South):

May I direct a question to the Minister of National Revenue? Has the minister's attention been drawn to a press report in the Montreal Gazette of February 10, captioned "$5 million asked as taxes penalty"? This report suggests organized tax evasion on a large scale in high places. Will the minister make a statement to the house as to the progress his department is making in the prosecutions it has launched in this particular case?

Mr. Speaker, I am familiar with the case. It is still before the courts in Montreal, and until it is decided I feel that I should not make any public statement.

DISMISSAL OF RETURNING OFFICER IN DAVENPORT CONSTITUENCY


On the orders of the day:


PC

John Ritchie MacNicol

Progressive Conservative

Mr. John R. MacNicol (Davenport):

I see

the Acting Secretary of State has returned to the house. Perhaps he will recall that I asked him to make arrangements to have a meeting of the privileges and elections committee. A large delegation from the Davenport riding wishes to come to Ottawa to inquire into the reasons for the dismissal of their returning officer. Have any arrangements been made to call this committee together?
