Herbert Wilfred Herridge

Mr. H. W. Herridge (Kootenay West):

Mr. Speaker, as the lone member who appears to wish to take advantage of this opportunity to ask questions, I wish to address a "simsicle" question to the Minister of Trade and Commerce. Would the minister inform the house whether any organization or person has applied for an export permit for the CF-lOO's sold to Westbourne Supply Company by Crown Assets Disposal Corporation?

CCF

Herbert Wilfred Herridge

Mr. H. W. Herridge (Kooienay Wesi):

Mr. Speaker, I wish to address a question to the Associate Minister of National Defence. In view of press reports to the effect that Mr. Louis Richard, president of Crown Assets Disposal Corporation, is checking the claim of Mr. James McMaster that the 11 CF-lOO's recently sold to him by the corporation are in condition to be flown, would the minister inform the house later of the result of this investigation?

Mr. Speaker, I believe this question should be addressed to the Minister of Defence Production (Mr. O'Hurley). However, since I note that he is not in his seat I will take this question as notice, and will also give the required information to the hon. gentleman at a later date.
