Mr. J. W. Murphy (Lambton West):

Mr. Speaker, the minister did not answer the other part of my question and I wonder if he would take notice of that. I have reference to the servicing or what they call "dieselizing" of these particular trains or units.

Mr. Marler:

Well, Mr. Speaker, on April 2 the hon. member spoke about "tooling" and dieselizing" and then on the following day he corrected his question to make it read "fueling" rather than "tooling"; but for the life of me I do not know what he means by "dieselizing".

Mr. Murphy (Lambton West):

Well, perhaps I should make it a little less ambiguous. I suggest that the minister interpret the word "dieselizing" as meaning servicing.

Well, Mr. Speaker, I will try within the limited time here to see if I can "service" the hon. gentleman's question.

Mr. A. M. Nicholson (Mackenzie):

Mr. Speaker, I wish to direct a question to the Minister of National Health and Welfare. Did the minister authorize the sending of the travel brochure I hold in my hand, printed in English and in French, to Canadian old age pensioners, containing pictures of a Viscount, an ocean liner, the Super Continental and a new car, inquiring if they plan a trip to Europe or the United States this year? If so, how does the minister think those in receipt of old age pensions could travel by these various means on the $46 a month they receive?

Hon. Paul Martin (Minister of National Health and Welfare):

Mr. Speaker, I know nothing about the so-called insert, which I will look into. As to whether or not individuals could take advantage of a voyage such as my hon. friend mentions, I can only point out that obviously that could not be done unless in addition to the provision by the federal government the provinces likewise recognized that they had responsibilities in this regard.

Mr. Colin Cameron (Nanaimo):

Mr. Speaker, I have a question I should like to ask the Minister of National Revenue. Has the minister's attention been called to a report in this morning's Montreal Gazette which reads as follows:

Federal customs officers at Montreal airport at Dorval are enforcing a provincial ban on the circulation of certain United States magazines in the province of Quebec, despite the fact the magazines enter Canada freely by mail, and are sold in other provinces.

Mr. Bona Arsenault (Bonaventure):

Mr. Speaker, I wish to direct a question to the Minister of Labour. Considering the fact that some 2,000 bush workers in eastern parts of Quebec, about 400 of whom are domiciled in Bonaventure county, have in recent months been disqualified from their unemployment insurance benefits on the ground that they had failed to apply for positions offered by the Quebec North Shore Company at Lake Ste. Anne in northern Quebec; and having excellent reasons to believe that in a great number of cases-
