Mr. Van Horne:

Mr. Chairman, I am pleased to see this section being removed. It indicates the measure of reasonableness of this government when it recognizes the merit of suggestions from hon. members all over the house.

In New Brunswick, we are not too happy with the energy board. I shall come back to that later. As a matter of fact, some of our people are calling it the lack of energy board. I can assure you that there are other provisions in this act that meet with our approval but, up to now, there has been very little indication on the part of the energy board of a serious attitude toward problems connected with the transportation of gas and other fluids in New Brunswick or the other maritime provinces. In saying this, I realize that the hon. member for Bonavista-Twil-lingate will probably repeat the accusation he made the other day in Toronto that I am trying to promote some private interest. He

may have said this to some reporter in Toronto, but nothing could be farther from the truth.

Mr. Pickersgill:

I should like to rise on a question of privilege, Mr. Chairman. I think the hon. gentleman said I had once said of him that he was trying to promote some private interest. I have no recollection of ever having made any such statement. I certainly never had any such idea. If I was reported as having done so and did the hon. gentleman any injury, I apologize at once.

Clarence Decatur Howe

Mr. Van Home:

I merely read a report that the hon. member had said that. I can assure the hon. member that is not the case. We in the maritime provinces are interested in this matter of getting the energy board to take a more serious attitude toward our problems. I wish to take this opportunity of going on record to request the government to direct the energy board to give more serious consideration to these problems that come under this act, as they relate to the maritime provinces.

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Churchill:

My attention has been drawn to the fact that when we put forward the amendment we left in the printed section the word "said" in the first line, referring back to the National Energy Board Act. Consequently, we will have to have a further amendment now striking out the word "said".

Mr. Churchill:

This is in line 1 now of the

clause which has remained. We have to strike out the word "said" and put in the "national energy board" and then the line will read as follows:

Section 99 of the National Energy Board Act is amended by adding thereto the following subsection:
