Mr. Pickersgill:

Mr. Speaker, I am rising on a point of order. Similar questions were asked of me by the present Prime Minister and by the Minister of Justice in the Hanna case when I occupied the post the hon. lady

now occupies. I am sure the hon. lady could give the assurance without any impropriety.

Mr. Speaker:

Even if she could, I think it is not within the practice of the house for a member to comment on the willingness or unwillingness of a minister to answer a question.

Mr. Frank Howard (Skeena):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to direct a question to the Minister of Transport. I hope the notice reached him in sufficient time. Have any representations been made recently by the city of Prince Rupert or any other similarly interested groups protesting the announced action of Canadian Pacific Air Lines not to provide direct flights between Vancouver and Prince Rupert? If so, is any action contemplated to ensure that Prince Rupert receives such a direct air service?

In view of this most indefinite and unsatisfactory answer, can the minister inform the house whether the wheat board's 1957-58 account has now been closed out?
