Louis Stephen St-Laurent (Prime Minister; President of the Privy Council)

Liberal

Mr. St. Laurent (Quebec East):

The report has not been received. I understand that the commissioners themselves will attend to the translation and to the printing of a certain number of copies in order to make the report available to members of parliament and to the public just about as soon as it is made available to the government.

CANADIAN NATIONAL RAILWAYS

DENMARK, NOVA SCOTIA INQUIRY AS TO CLOSING OF STATION


On the orders of the day:


LIB

Gordon Timlin Purdy

Liberal

Mr. G. T. Purdy (Colchesier-Hanis):

I

have a question to ask the Minister of Finance. On what date, for what reasons, and on whose authority was the Canadian National Railways station at Denmark, Colchester county, Nova Scotia, closed?

The second part of my question is this. In considering representations made and to be made for the reopening of this station, would the election of a member opposed to the present administration have beneficial effects?

George Carlyle Marler (Minister of Transport)

Liberal

Hon. George C. Marler (Minister of Transport):

I gather from the substance of this question that it was intended for me. I would like to answer the second part first by saying that I can see no reason why the electors of Colchester county should wish to change their representative. As for the first part of the question, Mr. Speaker, I would have to take my hon. friend's question as notice.

Walter Edward Harris (Minister of Finance and Receiver General; Leader of the Government in the House of Commons; Liberal Party House Leader)

Liberal

Hon. W. E. Harris (Minister of Finance):

I think there was a hidden suggestion in that question that the report was now ready for others. So far as I know, it is not, and it will be some time before it is. However, in accordance with the custom I have always followed, when the report is received it will be tabled in the ordinary way.

Mr. Macdonnell:

Can we take it that the report will be tabled before the budget speech, so hon. members can study it in case the minister gives effect to part of it in his budget?
