George Randolph Pearkes

Mr. G. R. Pearkes (Nanaimo):

Mr. Speaker, on a question of privilege, on pages 2860 and 2861 of yesterday's Hansard, appear questions in my name and the answers thereto. My question was in six parts but answers are given to only the first two parts. I would request that the original question remain on the order paper so that I may have a complete answer.

Mr. Speaker:

The question was declared answered when it was called in the house. Do I understand from the hon. member for Nanaimo that it was not answered?

RAILWAYS, CANALS AND TELEGRAPH LINES


Fifth report of standing committee on railways, canals and telegraph lines.-Mr. McCulloch.


FREIGHT RATES

INQUIRY AS TO SUSPENSION OF INCREASE


On the orders of the day:


PC

John George Diefenbaker

Progressive Conservative

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

should like to direct a question to the Prime Minister in connection with the 7 per cent increase in freight rates ordered by the board of transport commissioners. Would the Prime Minister say how many provincial governments have asked him or the governor in council to suspend the increase and whether the governor in council intends on his own motion to vary or rescind the decision of the transport board or in any event to grant a reprieve until such time as the equalization of rates takes place?

Right Hon. L. S. St. Laurent (Prime Minister):

I have received telegrams from eight provincial premiers in respect to this order for the increase and I think each one

of them suggested that the governor in council should suspend the operation of the order. I shall be glad to have copies of the telegrams tabled if the hon. member desires, but that is my general recollection of their tenor. As to the other question, the government has given no consideration to the suggestion that it should on its own motion vary, rescind or suspend the order made by the board of transport commissioners. I think that answers the questions the hon. gentleman has asked.

Mr. A. M. Robichaud (Gloucester):

Mr. Speaker, may I be allowed to put a question to the Right Hon. Prime Minister? Have the lumber merchants and other industrialists in the maritimes made representations to the government requesting that the implementation of the new increase in freight rates be postponed so that interested groups may have sufficient time to present briefs?

CIVIL AVIATION

CRUMLIN AIRPORT, LONDON INQUIRY AS TO HEIGHT RESTRICTIONS ON BUILDINGS


On the orders of the day:


PC

Harry Oliver White

Progressive Conservative

Mr. H. O. White (Middlesex East):

I

should like to direct a question to the Minister of Transport, and this does not concern freight rates. Have orders been issued limiting the height of buildings and other structures adjacent to Crumlin airport, London, Ontario? If so, are these orders by authority of the amendments passed last session to the Aeronautics Act?

Lionel Chevrier (Minister of Transport)

Hon. Lionel Chevrier (Minister of Transport):

Mr. Speaker, as the house knows, an act was passed to amend the Aeronautics Act to provide for the zoning of certain airports. Thus far surveys and investigations have been made with reference to Malton and Dorval airports. While the traffic at London is important, and while the regulations will apply to that airport as soon as we get

The Budget-Mr. Quelch around to it, I must tell my hon. triend that the position so far is that we have only been able to deal with the two airports to which I have referred.
