Gordon Timlin Purdy

Liberal

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

Mr. Speaker, I should like to direct a question to the Minister of Agriculture. Before I do so, however, I should like, on behalf of the farmers in my constituency specifically and in Nova Scotia generally, to thank him for the announcement he has just made in connection with freight rates on feed grain. My question is this. Are studies going forward with a view to extending the general provisions of the Maritime Marshland Rehabilitation Act to the interval land in our numerous river valleys?

On the orders of the day:


PC

Carl Olof Nickle

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Carl O. Nickle (Calgary South):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to direct a question to the Prime Minister. Is the Prime Minister now prepared to take appropriate action at this session of parliament, in response to a resolution passed by the Alberta legislature supported by 12 Liberal M.L.A.'s in addition to members of other parties, calling on the federal government for the repeal of section 12 of the Indian Act of 1951?

Liberal

Right Hon. L. S. St. Laurent (Prime Minister):

Mr. Speaker, that question is under consideration and the consideration will not be completed until the courts have dealt with the case that is now before them. In connection with that consideration it is the merits

of the case and not the views stated by members of the legislature of Alberta, of whatever party they may belong, that will be the governing factor when a decision is made.

LIB

Liberal

Mr. Paul Hellyer (Parliamentary Assislant fo the Minister of National Defence):

Mr. Speaker, yesterday the hon. member for Oxford asked a question about the disposition of the aircraft of H.M.C.S. Magnificent. I took the question as notice since I was in some doubt as to the aircraft the hon. member had in mind. However, I am now informed that he was referring to the 59 Sabres that were recently returned to Canada aboard the Magnificent.

The aircraft are being distributed to auxiliary fighter squadrons in Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver; some for immediate use, while others will be held in reserve in support of these squadrons.

ROYAL CANADIAN AIR FORCE

STATEMENT ON CRASH AT ST. JAMES, MANITOBA


On the orders of the day:


LIB

Paul Theodore Hellyer (Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of National Defence)

Liberal

Mr. Paul Hellyer (Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of National Defence):

Mr. Speaker, while I am standing I would like to refer to the question raised by the hon. member for Winnipeg South Centre on Tuesday, February 26, with reference to the recent air crash at St. James, Manitoba.

An examination of the aircraft, an R.C.A.F. Mitchell, after the crash revealed that there was no gasoline aboard. However, since the fuel system in this aircraft is a rather complicated, automatic one, an extensive technical examination is required to determine the cause or causes of the aircraft being out of fuel.

As this examination has not yet been completed, I do not feel that I should make any further comment at this time which might anticipate the findings of the official board of inquiry or prejudice any subsequent action that might be required in this matter.
