I should like to ask the minister whether he has made any representations to the United Nations to the effect that, unless satisfactory arrangements on the functions

of the United Nations emergency force are agreed upon, the Canadians are going to be withdrawn from the force?

Hon. L. B. Pearson (Secretary of Slate for External Affairs):

Yes, we have more than once, as I have said already in this house, informed the appropriate committee of the United Nations assembly that if the lack of co-operation on the part of any government, particularly on the part of the government of Egypt on whose territory the force is functioning, made it impossible for the United Nations emergency force to discharge the functions laid down for it by the assembly, the Canadian government could not recommend the continued participation of the Canadian elements in that force. I added to the United Nations committee that if we had to take that course it would be a matter of great regret, because we are still hoping the force will be able to function as it should function.

Mr. Pearson:

The general commanding the force is satisfied at the present time with the arrangements that have been made with the government of Egypt as to the functioning of the force. There has, however, been no reply yet from the government of Israel as to whether the force should operate on the Israel side of the armistice line as well as on the Egyptian side. It is to be hoped that matter will soon be cleared up.

Copies of the new agreement authorized by the order in council were sent out by the Minister of Labour for Canada on March 21, 1957, to the governments of all provinces, including the government of the province of Quebec, for approval and signature.

The answer to the second part of the question is as follows. During the period from April 1, 1945, to date the province of Quebec has received from the federal government under the vocational schools assistance agreement the amount of $10,375,513.80.

Hon. James Sinclair (Minister of Fisheries):

Mr. Speaker, I have never made any written representations to any C.B.C. officials about either television or radio programs. However, the Department of Fisheries does collaborate with the C.B.C. in supplying material for the daily fishermen's broadcasts which are heard over C.B.C. stations in Halifax, St. John's and Vancouver at seven a.m. each morning. When I have visited these fishing ports I have met the producers of the programs, discussed the programs with them and conveyed to them the very warm appreciation of fishermen on both coasts for this splendid public service.
