Mr. John B. Hamilton (York West):

Since I asked the original question about Orenda engines, perhaps I could ask a supplementary question. Does the government's contract schedule for supplies from Orenda indicate that the men who are being laid off now have a prospect of re-employment as a result of the continued schedule of purchases?

Inquiries of the Ministry certainly the present staff can expect re-employment-at least I assume everyone now employed will have a priority when that time comes. On the other hand, while the immediate requirements for Orenda engines are satisfied, it is quite possible that further orders for aircraft will be placed which will call for further engines, but it is difficult for me to make a definite statement now in that regard.

should like to direct a question to the Prime Minister arising out of the text of a letter made public in the Leader-Post of May 26 wherein the premier indicates the Saskatchewan government is strongly in favour of a publicly-owned pipe line and the suggestion is made that Ontario, Quebec and Manitoba be sounded out as to their support for this proposal. Can the Prime Minister state whether any consideration has been given to this proposal?

Right Hon. C. D. Howe (Minister of Trade and Commerce):

I did not hear the broadcast at eight o'clock, but under the terms of the pipe-lines bill the gas cannot be sold for export to the United States at a price lower than it is sold in a comparable position in Canada.
