Mr. Antoine Belanger (Charlevoix):

Mr. Speaker, I would like to direct a question to the Minister of Forestry. In view of the fact that the minister is about to meet with the provincial ministers responsible for the ARDA program in their respective provinces, in order to discuss the renewal of the agreement concerning that program, does the government intend to enlarge the scope of that

Inquiries of the Ministry act so it may participate in a wider variety of projects than at present?

Mr. Gilbert Rondeau (Shefford):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to put a question to the Minister of National Defence.

Can the minister tell us if there will be repercussions in the Canadian national defence following the statement made yesterday by the United States secretary for defence that 95 American military bases will be closed down?

Hon. Paul Hellyer (Minister of National Defence):

I do not think it would be appropriate, Mr. Speaker, to comment on the announcement made in Washington until we have the details here, which we would expect to receive fairly shortly. As far as I know there are no changes proposed which would have a direct effect.

David Réal Caouette

Ralliement Créditiste

Mr. Real Caoueiie (Villeneuve):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to put a supplementary question to that asked a moment ago by the hon. member for Shefford (Mr. Rondeau) about the decision of the U.S. government to close some military bases.

Has the U.S. government advised Canada that they wished to close some military bases which they now have in our country?

We would like, of course, to obtain an accurate answer in order to know if it is true that the United States will put an end to such activities in Canada?

Mr. Speaker, must the Secretary of State for External Affairs prompt the Minister of National Defence with an answer?

Mr. Donald Maclnnis (Cape Brelon South):

Mr. Speaker, I have a supplementary question with reference to the answer given by the

Minister of National Defence. I put my question to the Prime Minister. The Minister of National Defence received a question as notice on behalf of the Secretary of State for External Affairs. Is this an indication of a further cut-back in the Department of National Defence, and are we finally going to have only one minister for the department?

PICTOU COUNTY, N.S.-REQUEST FOR ACTION TO RELIEVE UNEMPLOYMENT


On the orders of the day:


PC

Howard Russell MacEwan

Progressive Conservative

Mr. H. Russell MacEwan (Pictou):

Mr. Speaker, I have a question for the Minister of Industry. I should like to ask the minister whether he has received a telegram from the president of the board of trade of Pictou regarding unemployment in the local shipyard as a result of the recent lay-offs. The minister will recall that a couple of weeks ago I drew to his attention the telegram sent by the union. I should like to ask him whether he has had any success in having any naval refit work placed with this yard.
