QUESTION AS TO REOPENING BRAZILIAN MARKET FOR SALT CODFISH


On the orders of the day:


PC

Gordon Francis Higgins

Progressive Conservative

Mr. G. F. Higgins (St. John's East):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to ask a question of the Minister of Fisheries. Is the Brazilian market for salt codfish to be reopened?

Robert Wellington Mayhew (Minister of Fisheries)

Liberal

Hon. R. W. Mayhew (Minister of Fisheries):

The hon. member was good enough to give notice of his question. In reply I would point out that the reopening of the Brazilian market to Canadian codfish is of course a question for the Brazilian government itself. However, negotiations have been going on since November, 1949, between the Brazilian government and the Canadian government for the opening up of this market, and will continue.

EDUCATION

AVAILABILITY OF MATERIALS FOR CONSTRUCTION OF SCHOOL BUILDINGS


On the orders of the day:


LIB

George Alexander Cruickshank

Liberal

Mr. G. A. Cruickshank (Fraser Valley):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to ask a question of the Minister of Defence Production or his parliamentary assistant, arising out of press reports in my riding. Has the federal government requested the provincial governments to curtail necessary school building in the interests of the national defence program?

Clarence Decatur Howe (Minister of Defence Production; Minister of Trade and Commerce)

Liberal

Right Hon. C. D. Howe (Minister of Defence Production):

Mr. Speaker, the answer to

the question is no. To explain the position further, there is no prohibition against obtaining steel or any other material for the construction of schools. Obviously, however, the federal government cannot become responsible for the allocation of steel for the construction of schools. Usually steel can be obtained for that purpose.

PARLIAMENT HILL

REPLACEMENT OF GLASS IN WINDOWS OF LIBRARY


On the orders of the day:


?

Mr. Gordon Gray don@Peel

Mr. Speaker,

I should like to direct a question to the Minister of Public Works. I have not informed him of my intention to ask this question; therefore he may wish to take it as notice. Just a year ago today, as a result of a violent windstorm, panes of glass in the dome of the library of parliament were broken. Later they were replaced by boards or plywood and they have remained that way ever since. The lighting and the appearance of the library are affected by the lack of window glass. Would the minister consider the desirability of repairing the damage by the replacement of the panes, so that the lighting and the appearance would be restored to normal?

Hon. Alphonse Fournier (Minister of Public Works):

I certainly will take into

consideration the request made by the hon. member.
