Progressive Conservative

Hon. Michael Starr (Minister of Labour):

Mr. Speaker, I think an assurance has been given, and will be carried out, that after the report is in the hands of the government hon. members will be given an opportunity to study it during the recess. I imagine that the only way they could study it during the recess would be if they received it.

Mr. J. R. Nicholson (Vancouver Centre):

Mr. Speaker, I have a question I should like to direct to the Minister of Transport. On

November 26 he replied to a question which I had asked earlier in the month with regard to appointment of a land use committee in connection with the land surrounding Vancouver harbour. This committee was promised in October, 1961. The minister stated that he expected shortly to announce the government's decision. May we expect that decision before the end of the year?

Mr. Stanley Knowles (Winnipeg North Centre):

Mr. Speaker, may I direct a question to either the Minister of Finance or his parliamentary secretary. On Wednesday, October 17, over two months ago, the house passed a motion of mine calling for the tabling of all correspondence with ministers of the government regarding pay increases and negotiating procedures for the civil service. Can something be done to expedite the tabling of this return?
