INQUIRY AS TO POSSIBLE LEGISLATION


On the orders of the day:


CCF

Stanley Howard Knowles (Whip of the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation)

Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (C.C.F.)

Mr. Stanley Knowles (Winnipeg North Centre):

May I address a question to the Minister of National Health and Welfare (Mr. Martin). I was going to ask the minister this question yesterday but he is getting so slight I could not see him over there.

Can the minister say when he is going to make the announcement with respect to health insurance which one of his colleagues in the cabinet said recently would be made at this session of parliament?

Hon. Paul Martin (Minister of National Health and Welfare):

My hon. friend knows that whenever an announcement is made it is always made by the government at a time chosen by the government. I do not know

what my hon. friend is referring to but I think he will find that my answer is as definite as the question.

EXTERNAL AFFAIRS

STRATEGIC MATERIALS GOING TO U.S.S.R.


On the orders of the day:


PC

John George Diefenbaker

Progressive Conservative

Mr. J. G. Diefenbaker (Lake Centre):

wish to address a question to the Secretary of State for External Affairs (Mr. Pearson), arising out of an article in the current issue of Life magazine to the effect that strategic metals and aluminum from Canada are finding their way to the U.S.S.R. Is the minister in a position to say what is being done to prevent such a condition if it exists?

Hon. L. B. Pearson (Secretary of Stale for External Affairs):

I will have to look into

the matter but I can say now that there are international arrangements in which Canada participates to ensure that strategic metals do not get to the wrong destination. I think those arrangements are working reasonably well although they are probably not 100 per cent satisfactory. Indeed, during world war II such arrangements were not 100 per cent perfect. I will look into the matter and see if I can make a further report.

Mr. Speaker, I would like to address a question to the Prime Minister (Mr. St. Laurent) of which I sent him notice. Has the government received a brief from the national federation of Canadian university students asking for action on the Massey commission's report in regard to university scholarships? If so, has it been considered and what action is proposed?

Mr. Murphy:

I wonder if I could ask a

supplementary question of the parliamentary assistant in view of the answer he has given. Is he in a position to say whether the goverhment will take any action respecting the importation of refined sugar into Canada, and take it now?
