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

The present state of our markets in the United Kingdom is quite normal. My purpose in going there is to take part in the opening of the British industries fair, and not for any reason having to do with changing the situation in respect of British trade.

PC

Charles Elwood Stephenson

Progressive Conservative

Mr. C. E. Stephenson (Durham):

I should like to ask a question of the Minister of National Revenue. In view of the fact that auditors and others engaged in making out income tax returns cannot cope with the large numbers of returns to be made, will the minister reconsider the question of granting an extension of time for the filing of returns?

On the orders of the day:


CCF

Gladys Grace Mae Strum

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

Mrs. Gladys Strum (Qu'Appelle):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to ask a question of

the Postmaster General. In view of the fact that the federal government has taken over the ownership of post office boxes, and postmasters throughout the country are now deprived of revenues from those boxes, will the federal government before this session breaks up see that payment is made to postmasters for the boxes?

Hon. Ernest Bertrand (Postmaster General):

Orders have been given in the department to pay postmasters immediately for the boxes. I think quite a number have already received cheques. However, I shall take the matter up with the officers in my department and see that it is looked into at once.
