Maurice Bourget (Speaker of the Senate)

Mr. Speaker:

Order. I am going to raise a point of order myself for a change. Under the instructions given me, answers to questions should be as brief as possible, should deal with the matter raised, and should not provoke debate. The same thing goes for questions asked.

Mr. Pigeon:

Mr. Speaker, may I ask a very short supplementary question?

Can the minister tell the house why, in 1961, when the Conservative party was in power, the Canada Year Book was published at the same time in English and French? [Text]

On the orders of the day:


PC

William Heward Grafftey

Mr. Heward Graffley (Brome-Missisquoi):

Mr. Speaker, may I direct a question to the Minister of Justice?

Did the minister make a statement yesterday in Montreal, to the effect that the federal government has established, in the privy council office, a secretariat to deal with federal-provincial relations?

Mr. Speaker, I am not in the habit of interpreting my own speeches, but for more security, I shall be pleased to send the hon. member a copy of my speech.

Maurice Bourget (Speaker of the Senate)

Mr. Speaker:

Order. I do not think I quite understood the hon. member. It seemed to me that his question was answered. Does the hon. member wish to put it again at ten o'clock? Is he not satisfied with the answer given?

Mr. Speaker, I certainly do not consider that my question was answered and I should like to have it brought forward for debate after ten o'clock.

PC

Eldon Mattison Woolliams

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Eldon M. Woolliams (Bow River):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to put a question to the Minister of Justice, and perhaps I might

Inquiries of the Ministry preface my question by congratulating the officials of the department, through the minister, for the conviction of Banks. My question arises out of a remark made by Mr. Justice Wagner and also a question I put to the Minister of Justice some time ago. Are the minister and his department considering laying a charge against McLaughlin, as was recommended by this party and carried out against Banks, and bringing McLaughlin before the courts of justice?

Hon. Guy Favreau (Minister of Justice):

Mr. Speaker, the matter is presently before the courts. I think it would be out of order, therefore, for me to comment on it. However, the hon. member may be assured that in my department every consideration is being given to all the relevant factors in the circumstances.

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Woolliams:

I rise on a point of order, Mr. Speaker. I do not understand what the Minister of Justice means by his reference to the matter being before the courts, because it has now been decided as far as Banks is concerned; he has been brought before the court of justice and sentenced to five years imprisonment. My question arises out of a remark made by Mr. Justice Wagner with reference to Mr. Banks, and it also refers to Mr. McLaughlin. My question the other day referred to the report made by counsel to this government. That committee was appointed by this government, and I should like to know whether the report recommended that a charge be laid against McLaughlin. We put the same question to the former minister of justice and did not receive a reply at that time.

Order. This question requires a legal opinion from the Minister of Justice, a legal opinion from the Minister of Justice, this time.

Mr. H. A. Olson (Medicine Hal):

Mr. Speaker, I have a supplementary question for the Minister of Labour. In view of the statement contained in the judgment handed down in the last few days with respect to Mr. Banks, to the effect that Mr. McLaughlin was involved almost as deeply as Mr. Banks, does the minister intend to go ahead with placing Mr. McLaughlin in the position of president of the S.I.U.?
