Mr. Adamson:

Are those persons who are being recruited by the very large recruiting drive now going on by some of the American manufacturers required to have immigration visas before they can work? For instance, Ford is looking for five hundred mechanics in the Toronto area at this time. Do they have to have immigration visas?

Mr. W. J. Browne (St. John's West):

I

should like to direct a question to the

2194 HOUSE OF

Inquiries oj the Ministry Minister of Transport. I have not given him notice but I hope he will be as well prepared to answer as the Secretary of State for External Affairs. I should like to know if any consideration has been given to the question of adjusting telegraph and radiotelephone rates between the other provinces and Newfoundland to bring them in line with rates prevailing on this side of the Atlantic.

Hon. Lionel Chevrier (Minister of Transport):

That is hardly a question that could be answered without notice. As my hon. friend knows, telephone rates are under the jurisdiction of the board of transport commissioners. I would have to inquire whether or not an application to adjust them has been made to the board. In any event I will have to look into the matter and give an answer later.
