Mr. Thomas M. Bell (Saint John-Alberi):

Mi. Speaker, I have a question for the Minister of Veterans Affairs further to questions that have been asked about the Colonel Belcher and other military hospitals. May I ask the minister whether any discussions whatsoever have taken place with regard to Lancaster hospital in New Brunswick, particularly the Ridgewood annex; and if so, what have been the results of such discussions?

Hon. Roger Teillel (Minister of Veterans Affairs):

Mr. Speaker, we have had a communication from the compensation board of the province requesting the purchase of a part of the property at Ridgewood. They have had it surveyed. We have replied that we are prepared to talk to them with regard to part of that property. This is where the matter rests at this moment.

PARLIAMENT BUILDINGS

REQUEST FOR IMPROVEMENT IN MEMBERS' ACCOMMODATION


On the orders of the day:


LIB

James Roy Tucker

Liberal

Mr. J. R. Tucker (Trinily-Concepiion):

Mr. Speaker, may I direct a very urgent and important question to the Minister of Public Works, notice of which has been given. In view of the approach of summer, so beautifully illustrated by the tulips in front of this building; the fact that our summer recess may be of short duration, and the lack of proper ventilation in many offices in this building, would the minister consider making temporary improvements until the rooms have been air conditioned?

On the orders of the day:


PC

Louis-Joseph Pigeon

Progressive Conservative

Mr. L. J. Pigeon (Jolielle-L'Assompiion-Montcalm):

Mr. Speaker, may I direct a question to the Secretary of State?

Could the minister tell the house why the French version of the Canada Year Book is to be published in July only, whereas the English edition has already been published?

Hon. Maurice Lamoniagne (Secretary of

State): Mr. Speaker, I shall inquire and report to the hon. member.

Mr. Pigeon:

Mr. Speaker, may I ask a supplementary question?

Is the minister not of the opinion that instead of setting up an inquiry on bicultur-alism, which will cost half a million, the government should rather be less hypocritical and do something?

Maurice Lamontagne (Secretary of State of Canada)

Liberal

Mr. Lamontagne:

Mr. Speaker, as my hon. friend is undoubtedly aware, the government's translation services were seriously neglected under the former administration

and we must now develop them so that both editions can be published simultaneously.
