Liberal

Hon. Guy Favreau (Minister of Justice):

Mr. Speaker, I do not think that any conversation between a minister of the crown and the premier of a province can be the subject of a question in this house, unless the minister thinks there are special reasons to answer it.

Mr. Grafftey:

Mr. Speaker, may I direct a supplementary question to the Prime Minister with relation to his conversations with Premier Lesage of the Province of Quebec the night before last? Did the Premier of the Province of Quebec inform the Prime Minister when the Government of Quebec intended to present the Fulton-Favreau formula before the Quebec legislature? If not, did the Prime Minister ask the Premier when they intended to present this resolution for the repatriation of the constitution?

Did the Prime Minister ask the Premier when they were going to proceed with this matter, in view of the fact that nine other provinces have approved the formula?

PC

William Howell Arthur Thomas

Progressive Conservative

Mr. W. H. A. Thomas (Middlesex West):

have a question for the Prime Minister. Some weeks ago I asked if he could give us a progress report on the work of the Special Committee set up to inquire into the economic, social and political effects on the rest of Canada if the Province of Quebec becomes separated. Now that more than two months have passed since I asked the question, I

wonder if the Prime Minister is in a position to give us a report? Has he received a report from this Committee, and if so will it be made public?

POST OFFICE DEPARTMENT


On the orders of the day:


PC

Robert Simpson

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Robert Simpson (Churchill):

I should like to direct a question to the Prime Minister with reference to question No. 81 which was answered. I am informed that the post office mail box pick-up contract has been taken away from a widow with two children and handed over to the past president of the local Liberal Association. In a naive manner the reply states there is no record of representations in this record. Can the Prime Minister say whether Canadians must now be prepared to accept these underhanded tactics as a matter of course under his Government?
