Mr. Hazen Argue (Assiniboia):

Mr. Speaker, may I direct a question to the Prime Minister. Can the Prime Minister give the house any idea when he expects the interim report of the Borden commission to be presented to the government dealing with petroleum and natural gas?

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

I am sorry, Mr. Speaker, but I have no definite information in this regard. As I stated the other day, the Borden commission adjourned with a view to giving consideration to and making an interim report. However, I will communicate with the chairman at once with a view to ascertaining the approximate date when that interim report will be ready.

Progressive Conservative

Mr. A. R. Smith (Calgary South):

Mr. Speaker, I wonder if I might ask a supplementary question coupled with a suggestion.

57071-3-185

There is every possibility, we are led to believe, that an interim report might be made available on natural gas in advance of the report on the marketing of petroleum products. Perhaps that suggestion could be contained in the request as well.

LIB

Rodolphe Leduc

Mr. Rodolphe Leduc (Gatineau):

Mr. Speaker, I would like to put a question to the Minister of Justice (Mr. Fulton).

Does the Minister of Justice intend to proceed against the companies found guilty of price fixing in respect of pulpwood, as indicated in the report of the commission on restrictive trade practices with regard to the purchase of pulpwood bought from farmers or settlers in certain areas of eastern Canada?

Edmund Davie Fulton (Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada)

Hon. E. D. Fulton (Minister of Justice):

Mr. Speaker, I thank the hon. member for having given me notice of this question. In answer I will state that this case has already been referred to Quebec lawyers who have been instructed to institute legal proceedings unless, in preparing the case, they should arrive at the conclusion that the evidence is insufficient.
