Mr. SI. Laurent:

Perhaps I might answer this question orally because the answer requires some qualification. The question is:

Have any letters, telegrams, resolutions, etc., been received from cities and other municipalities and public bodies protesting against the cabinet decision on the application of Canadian Pacific Air Lines for freight cargo rights?

Nothing has been received from any cities, municipalities or public bodies in the sense that cities and municipalities are public bodies, but two letters have been received, one from a board of trade and one from a chamber of commerce, containing qualified comments about the decision.
