Michael Starr (Minister of Labour)

Mr. Starr:

I am advised1 by my officials that apart from correspondence between officers of the Department of Labour and the Post Office Department, which is considered privileged, there has been no other correspondence on this matter. In view of this I would ask that the hon. member consider dropping this motion.

EXPORT STRATEGIC LIST


Motion No. 18-Mr. Mcllrailh: That an order of the house do issue for a copy of the strategic list referred to by the Minister of Trade and Commerce, page 708, Hansard, February 9, 1962.


PC

Gordon Minto Churchill (Minister of Veterans Affairs; Leader of the Government in the House of Commons; Progressive Conservative Party House Leader)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Churchill:

The Minister of Trade and Commerce has given me the following information on this subject. A similar question was raised in 1956 on July 9; the reference in Hansard is to page 5768. The then minister of trade and commerce, Right Hon. C. D. Howe, said:

Hon. members will appreciate that I cannot table secret and confidential information exchanged with certain NATO and other friendly countries covering controls over the shipment of strategic goods...

This motion cannot be accepted.

Mr. Mcllrailh:

This raises a question of privilege, inasmuch as the minister who has just taken his seat has referred to another

Motions for Papers

list. The reference in Hansard of that date is not to a question which had to do with the Export and Import Permits Act. The remarks of the former minister of trade and commerce had to do with a list which was of international significance in relation to NATO. The two lists are different. The remarks of the minister are not applicable.

INTERDEPARTMENTAL COMMITTEE SUBMISSION ON RAND REPORT


Motion No. 19-Mr. Robichaud: That an order of the house do issue for a copy of the report made by an interdepartmental committee for submission to the government on the recommendations made by Mr. Justice Rand relating to the Nova Scotia coal industry.


PC

Jacques Flynn (Minister of Mines and Technical Surveys)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Flynn:

As indicated on February 8 by the Prime Minister, when he answered a question about this report put by the hon. member for Cape Breton North and Victoria (Mr. Muir), the report referred to in this motion is privileged and it is contrary to the practice to produce it. I was wondering whether the hon. member would insist on putting his motion. If so, we would have to oppose it.
