Hon. Howard C. Green (Acting Prime Minister):

I did not realize that the hon.

member was so anxious to attend the Liberal convention. I am hoping it will be possible to make some arrangement among the parties so there will be no unnecessary interference with the business of the house or, for that matter, with the business of the convention.

UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE

VANCOUVER


On the orders of the day:


CCF

Frank Howard

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

Mr. Frank Howard (Skeena):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to direct a question to the Minister of Labour but in his absence possibly his parliamentary assistant could deal with it. Has the minister received a request from the united fishermen and allied workers' union or from any other source for an investigation into the alleged inefficiency of the unemployment insurance offices at Vancouver in processing claims for benefits as reported in the Prince Rupert Daily News on December 23 and, if so, what action has been taken or is contemplated?

MATTAWA, ONT. REQUEST FOR OPENING OF OFFICE


On the orders of the day:


LIB

John Richard Garland

Liberal

Mr. J. R. Garland (Nipissing):

Mr. Speaker, I had a question for the Minister of Labour this morning, but in his absence and also in 96698-180J

the absence of his parliamentary assistant perhaps the Acting Prime Minister might take it as notice. In view of the recent sharp increase in unemployment in the town of Mattawa, and in view of the inconvenience that is being experienced there under the special circumstances that exist, I wonder whether the minister would give immediate consideration to the opening of an unemployment insurance commission office in that town?

TELEVISION

MARITIME PROVINCES


On the orders of the day:


LIB

Henry Joseph Murphy

Liberal

Mr. H. J. Murphy (Westmorland):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to direct a question to the Minister of National Revenue. Will the minister ask the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation to arrange for the televising in the maritime provinces of the Yvon Durelle and Anthony boxing match to be held January 10 in the United States? Yvon Durelle is a New Brunswicker, and the people in the areas covered by television stations are most anxious to view this match.

George Clyde Nowlan (Minister of National Revenue)

Progressive Conservative

Hon. G. C. Nowlan (Minister of National Revenue):

Mr. Speaker, I will be very glad to draw the attention of the C.B.C. to the hon. gentleman's question, but in view of the fact that the microwave connection will not be completed until February 2 it may be that there would be some difficulty in arranging for an instantaneous broadcast of that fight.

Henry Joseph Murphy

Mr. Murphy (Westmorland):

Mr. Speaker, a supplementary question. Would the minister draw to the attention of the corporation the fact that the people in the maritimes received live television coverage of the world series and other events in Canada even though the microwave connection was not complete.
