Hon. Stuart S. Garson (Minister of Justice):

Mr. Speaker, I would not think there was. It will depend in part on the matter of translation and printing. I would not want to undertake at this moment to make the assertion that it will be available, and even if it were I would not think it likely that there would be too much time in this session for consideration of it.

INQUIRY AS TO RESEARCH INTO NEW USES


On the orders of the day:


SC

Frederick Davis Shaw

Social Credit

Mr. F. D. Shaw (Red Deer):

Mr. Speaker, on February 7 I asked the Minister of Mines and Technical Surveys if he was prepared to make a statement respecting developments in the field of research so far as coal is concerned. The minister's answer was, "Yes, at the first opportunity". I take it that meant

that he would make a statement at the first opportunity. Is the minister yet able to make a statement in that regard?

Would the Minister of Trade and Commerce regard it as appropriate for the managing director of a crown corporation to be on the board of directors of a private company which has been receiving subsidies from the federal treasury of half a million dollars a year?
