Mr. Hellyer:

Mr. Speaker, there are some aircraft which are not subject to this fault. The Neptunes are not, and those Argus which are still in operation are carrying on the normal surveillance tasks.

Mr. Gerald A. Regan (Halifax):

A supplementary question. I wonder whether the Minister could indicate whether any decision has yet been made as to the company or plant at which the alterations to the aircraft will be made?

Alexis Pierre Caron (Parliamentary Secretary to the Postmaster General)

Liberal

Mr. Alexis Caron (Hull):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to direct a question to the Minister of Industry and Minister of Defence Production.

Is the minister aware that the Printing Bureau sent French reports to Toronto to have them set in galleys and that they came back with so many mistakes that they had to be returned for corrections, which explains why the French versions of the committee reports are still unpublished?

A supplementary question, Mr. Speaker. Is the minister aware that French speaking employees of the Printing Bureau are able to prepare those reports as long as they are given overtime as is the case for the reports in English?

Mr. Speaker, I have a question for the Acting Minister of External Affairs.
