MOTION FOR APPOINTMENT OF JOINT COMMITTEE TO CONSIDER AMENDMENTS


On the order: Government notices of motions: February 5-The Minister of Citizenship and Immigration-The following proposed motions- That a joint committee of the Senate and House of Commons be appointed to examine and consider the Indian Act, Chapter 149, R.S.C., 1952, and amendments thereto, and to suggest such amendments as they may deem advisable, with authority to investigate and report upon Indian administration in general and, in particular, on the social and economic status of the Indians; That 24 members of the House of Commons, to be designated at a later date, act on behalf of the house as members of the said committee, and that standing order 67(1) of the House of Commons be suspended in relation thereto; That the said committee have power to call for persons, papers and records and examine witnesses under oath; to sit while the house is sitting, and to report from time to time; and to print such papers and evidence from day to day as may be ordered by the committee and that standing order 66 be suspended in relation thereto; And that a message be sent to the Senate requesting that house to unite with this house for the above purpose, and to select, if the Senate deems advisable, some of its members to act on the proposed joint committee.

Ellen Louks Fairclough (Minister of Citizenship and Immigration)

Progressive Conservative

Mrs. Fairclough:

Stand.

Hon. Sidney E. Smith (Secretary of State

for External Affairs): Mr. Speaker, I must inform the house that there are no papers which could be produced in accordance with the terms of this motion. Concultations have, of course, been held by Canadian and United States officials over the past few years with the object of determining how pilotage matters in the waters of the great lakes basin can be dealt with most satisfactorily. In the course of these discussions, which are of a continuing nature, working papers have been prepared and subjected to joint examination. No documents or correspondence on pilotage have, however, passed between the two governments subsequent to the Canadian aide memoire of March 20, 1958, a copy of which was tabled in the house on June 24 last.

Since there are no relevant papers, I suggest that the hon. member might allow this motion to drop.
