CONSIDERATION OF REPATRIATION FORMULA BY QUEBEC


On the orders of the day:


PC

William Heward Grafftey

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Heward Graffley (Brome-Missisquoi):

I should like to ask a question of the Prime Minister as the Minister reporting to the House on federal-provincial affairs. Has the Prime Minister or any other Federal Minister been informed by Premier Lesage or any other Minister of the Government of Quebec that the Quebec Government now has no intention of putting the Fulton-Favreau formula on repatriation of the constitution before the Quebec legislature?

EXPO '67 CONTRACTS WITH UNIONS RESPECTING BUILDING CONSTRUCTION


On the orders of the day:


LIB

Jean-Luc Pepin (Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Trade and Commerce)

Liberal

Mr. Jean-Luc Pepin (Parliamentary Secretary to Minister of Trade and Commerce):

On Tuesday last, Mr. Speaker, the hon. Member for Pictou questioned me concerning the existing agreements between Expo '67 and certain trade unions. Certain construction associations recently requested reassurance that Expo's labour agreement would apply on the site only, and that the corporation would not negotiate wages and working conditions with construction trades.

In order to make these two points abundantly clear the management of Expo, with the consent of the unions, have amended the existing agreements to establish clearly three basic points:

1. The unions undertake that there will be no strikes which will in any way affect the success of the exhibition.

2. The corporation undertakes that the exhibition shall be unionized.

3. For all the many problems arising out of many differences of opinion, points of view and conditions, the agreement sets up machinery for reaching equitable solutions.

REQUEST FOR REPORT ON IMPROVEMENT IN SERVICE

Mr. Lloyd R. Crouse (Queens-Lunenburg):

I should like to direct a question to the Minister of Transport. In view of the urgent need for larger and properly equipped coastguard ships on the east coast, will the Minister soon be in a position to give a report to the House on any improvements in this service that may be contemplated by his department?

Mr. Crouse:

May I ask a supplementary question. In giving this report will the Minister tell us whether the towing of disabled fishermen to port will become standard Government practice, and also whether, in expanding the coastguard to provide more ships, he will provide at least one more ship for the south shore of Nova Scotia?

Howard Russell MacEwan

Progressive Conservative

Mr. H. Russell MacEwan (Piclou):

I should like to ask the Minister of National Defence whether it is the intention of his Department

to transfer some of the minesweepers at Halifax to the Department of Transport for use in the coastguard. Is it the intention of the department to pay off these minesweepers, as was done a short time ago with the four frigates, or to leave them in mothballs?
