DOMINION-PROVINCIAL CONFERENCE REQUEST FOR TABLING OF LETTER FROM PREMIER OF NOVA SCOTIA


On the orders of the day: Kon. J. W. Pickersgill (Bonavisia-Twil-lingate): I wonder whether I could ask the Acting Prime Minister a question which he may think now is only of historical interest. Has he been able to find a letter from the premier of Nova Scotia, or any other correspondence relating to the recent lamented federal-provincial conference that has not yet been tabled?


PC

Howard Charles Green (Minister of Defence Production; Minister of Public Works; Leader of the Government in the House of Commons; Progressive Conservative Party House Leader)

Progressive Conservative

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

We have asked the premier of Nova Scotia whether he has any objection to tabling the correspondence. My hon. friend is really much more impressive when he is dealing with the Wesleyville post office which he neglected to get for his own constituency.

Mr. Pickersgill:

I have a supplementary question for the Acting Prime Minister, and it is this. Is there a letter from the premier of Nova Scotia which up to now the government has not admitted? Is there any other correspondence that has not been tabled?

BRITISH COLUMBIA


On the orders of the day:


?

Mr. F. G. J. Kahn@New Westminster

have a question for the Secretary of State for External Affairs. I regret that I did not send him notice of it. However, the question is of such a nature that he possibly does not require it. In view of the extraordinary and unrealistic statement made by General A. G. L. McNaughton before the external affairs committee with regard to the possibilities of fish and power on the Fraser river, would the minister consider calling as a witness before the committee a director of the international sockeye salmon commission and representatives of those interested in the fishing industry from British Columbia to hear their viewpoint regarding the question?

Daniel Roland Michener (Speaker of the House of Commons)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Speaker:

Order. It seems to me that the hon. member is asking a question about the proceedings of the committee. My information is that the committee has not yet reported. Is that correct?

On the orders of the day:


LIB

Lionel Chevrier (Official Opposition House Leader; Liberal Party House Leader)

Liberal

Hon. Lionel Chevrier (Laurier):

May I

address a question to the Minister of Public Works. Can the minister now say, or could he tell us on Monday if he does not know at this time, whether or not a formal application has been made by the government of the province of Quebec for the development of power in the Lachine section of the St. Lawrence river?
