LIB

Mr. Chevrier: (Minister of Transport)

Liberal

1. The financial relief which it is proposed to grant the shipping industry is temporary and for one year only.

To qualify, ship owners must agree (a) to operate vessels for a period of one year; (b) to employ Canadian domiciled crews.

It is anticipated that some forty vessels will be assisted, and these will be selected on the basis of their usefulness to Canada in the event of an emergency. The employment of Canadian domiciled crews will ensure the maintenance in Canada of a nucleus of trained merchant seamen to man these and other ships which Canada may have at her disposal should a state of emergency arise.

2. Yes, every consideration. It must be borne in mind that the employment of seamen from any particular area will to a large extent depend upon the owners' and operators' desire to avail themselves of the assistance afforded by the government.
