Mr. Hubert Badanai (Fort William):

I wish to direct a question to the Minister of Transport. Is the minister in a position to inform the house when the government is going to make general service band two-way radiotelephone communication available to the general public, which was to have been done months ago. And can the hon. gentleman explain the reason for this delay, which is causing hardship and confusion in the electronics industry?

Hon. J. W. Monteith (Minister of National Health and Welfare):

Mr. Speaker, on Friday I indicated to the house that I had directed that an immediate investigation be made into the problems that were reportedly being faced on the Prophet river Indian reserve in British Columbia.

This morning my department received a telegram from the regional superintendent of Indian and northern health services in Vancouver. This stated that the provincial health

Inquiries of the Ministry officer in charge of the Peace river health unit, who acts for us by arrangement, had visited the reserve last Saturday. He found no evidence of starvation, and reported that the three persons placed in hospital with hepatitis two weeks ago were now home again.

The only evidence of more recent illness apparently involves a number of influenza cases. The health officer indicated that residents of the reserve were concerned over the publicity that had appeared, and felt that the situation had been greatly exaggerated.
