Mr. E. D. Fulton (Kamloops):

Mr. Speaker, from one of the Prime Minister's earlier answers-I think the last answer but one- should we take it that the only way in which it will be possible now to obtain submission to and consideration by the government of any other reasonable proposal would be to defeat this legislation?

Mr. George H. Hees (Broadview):

I should like to direct a supplementary question to the Prime Minister in view of his last answer. Was not the proposition from Mr. McMahon handed to the Minister of Trade and Commerce (Mr. Howe) several weeks before he was aware of that fact?

I know of no proposal made by anyone for a pipe line to be built by a company owned 83 per cent in the United States.

Mr. Rowe:

As a supplementary question, I should like to ask the Prime Minister if he does not wish to answer my question? My question was, have any of the other offers been considered by the cabinet as a whole? The Minister of Finance had one and the Minister of Trade and Commerce had another, but you do not know anything about either of them. Have they been considered by the cabinet as a whole?

Mr. Speaker, may I direct a question to the Minister of Transport.
