Herbert Wilfred Herridge

New Democratic Party

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

have a supplementary question, Mr. Speaker, and I want to join with the hon. member

for Essex East in expressing the regrets of members of this group on the minister leaving, and, I am sure, the good will of the house toward the minister. Does the minister think it would assist in laying the foundations for a new political career to arrange for the building of a post office in New Denver in the Kootenays?

Edmund Davie Fulton (Minister of Public Works)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Fulton:

I appreciate this expression of sentiment also. I might have thought, however, that the hon. gentleman might be more practically interested in the foundations of the post office rather than in the foundations of my political career which may, on occasion, bring me into conflict with some of the hon. gentleman's own friends; but I shall look carefully into the question of the foundations for the post office.

Hon. Raymond O'Hurley (Minister of Defence Production):

If the hon. member for Trinity would look at the results of production sharing he would not ask that question, because the result is something he never thought of.

Mr. Arthur Laing (Vancouver South):

wish to direct a question to the Secretary of State for External Affairs. It relates to information which I sought in respect to correspondence between the government of Canada and that of the United States with regard to lumber shipments, which was promised to me some five weeks ago subject only to the agreement of the United States government. When may I expect the information?

John George Diefenbaker (Prime Minister)

Progressive Conservative

Right Hon. J. G. Diefenbaker (Prime Minister):

Mr. Speaker, as a result of the desire to extend to the greatest possible degree the tourist attractions of Canada, and in order to have available every means to that end, the government has decided that as the Department of Trade and Commerce has trade mission offices throughout the world it would be fitting and proper, in order to encourage tourism into our country from all parts of the world, to transfer the administration of the bureau to the Department of Trade and Commerce, which at one time had it under its jurisdiction. In announcing that decision I of course want to point out that there has been a tremendous advance in the last year and a half in tourism into Canada and in the amount that has been earned by Canadians from it, and the minister of northern affairs is entitled to every commendation for what he has been doing.
