Lionel Chevrier (Minister of Transport)

Liberal

Hon. Lionel Chevrier (Minister of Transport):

Well, Mr. Speaker, I am afraid I am not in a position to answer that question fully. Speaking generally I can say that the maritime commission have already put in motion the usual procedure to deal with the situation following the statement made in the house by the Prime Minister last December. I believe that early in December last they invited all ship operators and ship owners to forward their applications, indicating whether they wanted their ships transferred to the United Kingdom flag or whether they wanted to take advantage of the $3 million subsidy which was announced. I do not know whether my hon. friend has anything particularly in mind, but that is the general position as I know it.

The Prime Minister calls to my attention the fact, in addition to what I have said, that there is an item in the estimates to cover the amount of the subsidy.

Mr. Leon Balcer (Three Rivers):

I should like to ask the Minister of Transport whether it is within the knowledge of his department that the Montreal harbour commission has

offered its railway lines for sale to the Canadian National Railways. If so, is the minister prepared to make a statement about this transaction?

Lionel Chevrier (Minister of Transport)

Liberal

Hon. Lionel Chevrier (Minister of Transport):

Mr. Speaker, it seems to me a question of such importance should require some notice. However, I am not aware of the position to which he refers. I am aware of the fact that the members of the national harbours board did go to Montreal, as they go to all other ports under their jurisdiction, to discuss routine matters affecting the affairs of the port. I presume that they did have a discussion on routine matters when they were in Montreal, but I am certainly not in a position to deal with the question the hon. member has put.

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

Mr. Stanley Knowles (Winnipeg North Centre):

May I direct a question to the Minister of Finance? Following the supreme court decision of yesterday with respect to rent control, will the minister say whether the offer of the federal government to pay the cost of administration for one year to any province wishing to take over these controls still holds good?
