Mr. D. F. Brown (Essex West):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to address a question

Inquiries of the Ministry to the Prime Minister. Is the Prime Minister now prepared to answer a question I asked on January 22? Perhaps I had better repeat the question. Has he received a report, requested by the U.A.W. international union, on the construction of an atomic energy plant at Monroe, Michigan; and if so, is the Prime Minister satisfied that the public safety is assured?

Right Hon. J. G. Diefenbaker (Prime

Minister): I will give the hon. gentleman an answer to that question tomorrow. Any documents there may be in connection with this matter I have not with me at the moment.

Ernest George Hansell

Social Credit

Mr. E. G. Hansell (Macleod):

Mr. Speaker, may I ask a question of the Prime Minister. I have not given him notice, but he might care to make a statement at a later date. Pursuant to public opinion that relations between Canada and the United States are strained, and that if such relations are continued they may lead to strife-this report is based on certain incidents-what is the government's view on this situation, and what steps are being taken to remedy any possible unhealthy relations?

Right Hon. J. G. Diefenbaker (Prime Minister):

I do not require any notice in order to answer that question. I do not know the source of the suggestion, but it is certainly nonsense to say that our relations with the United States are in that condition, or face such a condition.

INQUIRY AS TO GOVERNMENT PLANS TO RELIEVE INDUSTRY


On the orders of the day:


SC

Charles Edward Johnston

Social Credit

Mr. C. E. Johnston (Bow River):

Mr. Speaker, may I direct a question to the Minister of Mines and Technical Surveys. According to press reports 82 men were laid off at one of the mines in Drumheller last week, and one of the large mines in Can-more is closing because of lack of orders. Can the minister tell the house what plans the government has in mind for increasing the markets for coal so the distressed coal industry of Alberta may get some relief?
