Gordon Graydon

Mr. Gordon Graydon (Peel):

I should like to direct to the Postmaster General a question of which I have given him notice. Is the special pre-Christmas advertising of the Postmaster General's department going to all of the weekly newspapers across Canada? If not, what policy is followed in this respect?

If the Postmaster General answers this question perhaps he might include in his answer what policy is being followed with regard to year-round advertising of the same department.

Hon. J. J. McCann (Minister of National Revenue):

Mr. Speaker, yesterday the Leader of the Opposition (Mr. Drew) asked a question which was as follows:

I should like to ask a supplementary question. Can the minister inform the house whether a gentleman of Polish extraction or Polish stock has been engaged for the purpose of starting such a program? If so, what is his name?

He had reference to programs to Poland. The answer is that no one has been engaged to start a Polish program for the international service or to advise on possible Polish progress.

BISHOP FULTON SHEEN-INQUIRY AS TO TELECASTING OF PROGRAM


On the orders of the day:


LIB

James Joseph McCann (Minister of National Revenue)

Liberal

Hon. J. J. McCann (Minister of National Revenue):

Mr. Speaker, I should also like to answer a question that was asked by the hon. member for Macleod (Mr. Hansell). The question was:

Has Bishop Fulton Sheen or have his sponsors applied to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation to have their program telecast? If so. has the application been refused? Would the minister care to make a statement with respect to the application?

The answer is: I am advised that the C.B.C. has made no final decision regarding acceptance of the television program of Bishop Sheen sponsored by an advertiser. The C.B.C. has asked for the opinion of its national religious advisory council on the matter. The council has considered the question, but has not yet given a definite opinion. When it does, which is expected very shortly, the C.B.C. will take a decision.
