Hon. George A. Drew (Leader of fhe Opposition):

Mr. Speaker, I wish to direct a question to the Minister of Northern Affairs and National Resources. Has the minister had his attention drawn to a severe outburst of spruce budworm in the national park at Ingonish? If so, can he inform the house as to any steps that have been taken to deal with this infestation?

Hon. Jean Lesage (Minister of Northern Affairs and National Resources):

Mr. Speaker, the hon. member for Cape Breton North and Victoria (Mr. Buchanan) drew my attention to this fact two days ago and I obtained a report from the forest biology division of the Department of Agriculture to the effect that there was no real, sudden outburst. There might have been some infestation in Cape Breton Highlands national park. It was nothing that was extraordinary. Anyway, our people there are looking into the matter at the present time.

Then may I take it from the answer of the minister that this subject is actually being examined and that if action is deemed advisable proper steps will be taken?

PC

Howard Charles Green

Mr. Howard C. Green (Vancouver-Quadra):

Mr. Speaker, I would like to direct a question to the Minister of Trade and Commerce. A radio report this morning indicated that representatives of the United Kingdom government would probably be coming to Canada next month to negotiate the purchase of quite large quantities of uranium. Can the minister give the house any report concerning these negotiations?

John George Diefenbaker

Mr. J. G. Diefenbaker (Prince Albert):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to ask the Secretary of State for External Affairs whether he can secure from the Canadian representative in Moscow something in the way of a transcript of the remarks attributed to Mr. Irvine which were most eulogistic of the democratic system in the U.S.S.R.? Can the minister secure something in the way of a record of the remarks that were made in that regard?

Mr. Speaker, may I direct a question to the Prime Minister. In view of the statement that Canada is making a free gift of 75 Sabre jets 67509-395J

Inquiries of the Ministry to Germany, will the Prime Minister now give consideration to at least selling 24 Sabre jets to the friendly country of Israel?
