Mr. J. S. Sinnott (Springfield):

Mr. Speaker, two hundred and fifty families have been evacuated from the city of Winnipeg to the town of Beausejour, Manitoba. I had to say those few words to indicate the importance of my question. Will the Minister of Public Works issue definite instructions that the gates which are used for navigation purposes at Lockport, Manitoba, be immediately lifted to alleviate flood conditions in Manitoba?

Hon. Alphonse Fournier (Minister of Public Works):

Just before entering the house I was told that a question would be asked concerning the opening of these gates. I have been informed that they are open to a certain extent, but that there is still some ice which prevents them from being opened completely, and there would be danger in trying to open them completely. As soon as they can be fully opened, instructions have been given that this be done.

should like to ask a question of the Minister of Justice. Has the minister received the report of the royal commission that was appointed to inquire into the properties of persons of Japanese origin who were evacuated from the defence coast of British Columbia in 1942? If the report has been received, will it be tabled, or will the minister make a statement in regard to it?

Hon. Stuari S. Garson (Minister of Justice):

The report to which my hon. friend refers came in in this morning's mail; at least it came to my desk this morning. I presume it was in the morning's mail, perhaps from the justice department in the Justice building.

I should like to have an opportunity of perusing it before I table it. It will be considered shortly.
