Paul Raymond Martineau (Deputy Speaker and Chair of Committees of the Whole of the House of Commons)

Progressive Conservative

The Chairman:

Order. I indicated to the hon. member a moment ago that he could add a few references concerning joint plans to the premise of his argument, but I suggest it is not within the scope of this discussion to consider the details of this program nor the fiscal agreements which could be reached between the federal and provincial governments. I would therefore ask the hon. member to get back to the estimates which are now before us.

Mr. Bourget:

Mr. Chairman, I will abide by your suggestion. I do not want to belabor the point further, but I believe that it would be the right time, since we have with us tonight the senior minister of the province of Quebec and the Minister of Mines and Technical Surveys-

Mr. Bourget:

If you will let me finish what I have to say, you will be able to ask me all the questions you wish. You asked questions

Supply-Labour

when I spoke on two previous occasions. Besides, it is not up to the Liberals, who are in opposition, to reply; it is up to you, who are in power, to shoulder your responsibilities. I feel it is time for you to take a stand and to say what you think of joint programs.

Mr. Bourget:

I am sorry, Mr. Chairman, but I feel hon. members opposite should stay quiet. I ask the ministers of the province of Quebec to say what they think about those joint plans, as well as the hon. member for Roberval whom-after his recent speeches in the province of Quebec-I am always surprised to see, not only on the government side, but also in this very house.

I would hope that hon. members interrupting from their seats will stop that so that the Chair as well as all hon. members may hear the remarks of the hon. member for Levis who has the floor.
