I should like to direct a question to the Minister of Transport. I am sorry I was not able to give him notice of it. Will he make a statement concerning the press report that the air transport board is going to ask the Colonial Air Lines to show cause why their licence should not be suspended?

Hon. Lionel Chevrier (Minister of Transport):

I do not know that I need make a statement in connection with it. The house is familiar with what has been going on in this regard in the United States. By virtue of the bilateral agreement, the air transport board has a perfect right to issue a show-cause order. I understand that the chairman of the board, or some member of it, has given the press a complete statement, which I have not seen, but I did see the report to which my hon. friend refers. All I can say is that the board, under the authority of the Aeronautics Act, has issued a show-cause order which I understand will be heard on December 12.
