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

May I ask the Minister of Transport whether he cannot give an answer to these questions? He was asked a perfectly reasonable question by the hon. member for Notre Dame de Grace. The minister has acted in the same way on many previous occasions. I suggest to him that, like other ministers, he give decent answers when questions are placed before him.

Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (C.C.F.)

Mr. Stanley Knowles (Winnipeg North Centre):

Mr. Speaker, may I direct a question to the minister of the crown through whom the C.B.C. reports to parliament. That is his designation, according to the order in council. In view of the fact that Mr. Dunton has released to the press copies of letters exchanged with Premier Frost, on the ground that Premier Frost had given out part of that correspondence, will the minister ask Mr. Dunton to release to the press copies of the letters exchanged with Prime Minister St. Laurent, on the same ground?

Hon. J. J. McCann (Minister of National Revenue):

I wish to answer the question asked on Tuesday, April 2, by the hon. member for Vancouver East, which is recorded on page 2958 of Hansard. It has to do with the importation of drugs from the Hoxsey clinic at Dallas, Texas, for the treatment of cancer. The question is with reference to the prohibition of entry of these drugs into Canada. A matter such as this is referred to the Department of National Health and

Welfare, and our instructions are that these drugs referred to in this question are prohibited under the Food and Drugs Act.

Mr. Solon E. Low (Peace River):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to direct a question to the Minister of Finance. Has he had time to consider the case of Premium Iron Ores, which I raised in the house the other night, as to whether or not it would be advisable now for Canada to lodge a direct protest with the United States government on their unilateral action in rewriting, or attempting to rewrite, the tax agreement between the two countries?

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

Mr. Speaker, we have had, of course, the representations that my hon. friend has made in the house and rather considerable correspondence about this. At the present time I think it would be correct to say that as Minister of Finance I have not felt that we ought to take any action other than that which has already been taken. I know there have been some recent developments. I shall have to look at them to see whether the terms of our tax treaties are such that we ought to make further representations.
