SC

Guy Marcoux

Mr. Guy Marcoux (Quebec-Monlmorency):

Mr. Speaker, I had a question for the Secretary of State, but in his absence I will address it as notice to his parliamentary secretary.

Could he tell the house how the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation could announce yesterday the construction of a pavilion on the world fair grounds, at a cost of $10 million-$4 million for construction and $6 for equipment-by means of funds not yet voted by parliament?

GATT-CONSIDERATION OF CANADA-U.S. AUTOMOBILE AGREEMENT


On the orders of the day:


SC

Horace Andrew (Bud) Olson

Social Credit

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

Mr. Speaker, I should like to direct a question to the Minister of Trade and Commerce, asking him whether he is aware that the 15 member committee established to examine the accord involving reciprocal easing of tariffs on cars between Canada and the United States has reported that this accord would clearly be a violation of GATT's most favoured nation rule, to which both Canada and the United States have agreed. If so, what is the Canadian position now in respect of this tariff accord which was signed between the two countries in January?

Mitchell William Sharp (Minister of Trade and Commerce)

Liberal

Hon. Mitchell Sharp (Minister of Trade and Commerce):

Mr. Speaker, it is true that the GATT committee has been examining the

provisions of the Canada-United States agreement in the light of the GATT agreement, and in particular to discover whether the United States position, which differs from the Canadian position, may require special GATT action. The committee which has been looking into this matter has not yet reported its findings.

So far as the Canadian government is concerned, the right of duty free entry of automobiles and original equipment parts extends to all countries without discrimination. The Canadian government has therefore expressed in GATT its firm belief that Canadian participation in the agreement is fully in accord with its GATT obligations. It might be noted that the press item, from which my hon. friend has presumably obtained his information, raises no question in this regard.

Alfred Dryden Hales

Progressive Conservative

Mr. A. D. Hales (Wellington South):

My

question is supplementary to the one just asked by the hon. member for Medicine Hat. On March 5 I addressed a question to the Minister of Finance and asked if Canada had received protests from members of GATT concerning Canada's stand on this automotive pact. He said yes, protests had been received. Could he advise me from whom those protests were received and what action was taken?

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

I wish to address a question to the Minister of Trade and Commerce. In order to express the sympathy of Canadians toward the civil rights struggle in the southern U.S., has the minister received any representations from any organizations or groups urging that an embargo be put upon imports into Canada of manufactured goods from those states?

Mr. Speaker, may I put a question to the Minister of National Health and Welfare?

Respecting the Quebec winter games organization and the holding of interprovincial winter games in Quebec city, would the Minister of National Health and Welfare have an announcement to make this morning as to whether a federal government grant, so anxiously awaited, will be provided?
