Progressive Conservative

Right Hon. J. G. Diefenbaker (Leader of the Opposition):

Mr. Speaker, I am just wondering whether a thought might be given to removing that description of Rabbi Fein-berg from Hansard. Otherwise the present and all future generations will have this description of the Rabbi that is so far removed from the facts. I do not like to see a libel like that perpetuated.

Harold Edward Winch

New Democratic Party

Mr. Winch:

Oh, Sir, I must rise on this. Good heavens; this is a man for whom I have the finest, most wonderful respect. My point is that this description I read has been distributed through the mails. On the point I raised yesterday, this is being said, through the mails, about this most honourable man; and, Sir, surely the implication whether-

Mr. Speaker:

Order, please. The Minister said he would take this matter into immediate consideration. It is, as a matter of fact, under intense investigation, and I am sure he will take every step possible to stop it.

Georges-J. Valade

Mr. Georges Valade (St. Mary):

A sup-mentary question to the Postmaster General, Mr. Speaker.

Mr. Speaker, I would have a supplementary question to ask the Postmaster General. I should like to know if, before taking a definite stand on hate literature he could not give a legal definition the government could use to take steps in this regard, prior to reaching a final decision. The reason I am asking the minister this question is to prevent another type of literature from coming under that definition, such as the pamphlets put out by the Minister of Justice against the leader of the Conservative party.

Order, please. Under our Standing Orders, to ask for a legal opinion from the Minister is out of order.

FISHERIES

REQUEST FOR POSTPONEMENT OF LOBSTER SEASON OPENING IN DISTRICT 6B


On the orders of the day:


PC

Robert Muir

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Robert Muir (Cape Breton North and Victoria):

Mr. Speaker, I had a question for

Inquiries of the Ministry the Minister of Fisheries. I have had a little difficulty in catching your eye, and the Minister has since departed from the chamber. However, because of the urgency of the subject matter may I direct my question to some Member of the Government. In view of the fact that a large field of drift ice is located off the coast of Cape Breton, would the Minister give consideration of delaying the opening of the lobster season in district 6B from May 15 to May 24? I regret I have not had an opportunity to give the Minister notice, but this question is prompted by a telegram I have received from the fishermen of the Cape Breton Co-operative Fisheries; and I might mention, Mr. Speaker, that I have also received a telegram, since coming into the House, from the Victoria Co-operative Fisheries Ltd.

INDUSTRY

DISCRIMINATORY MEASURES RESPECTING POTASH MINING


On the orders of the day:


PC

Reginald (Reg) Cantelon

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Reg Canielon (Kindersley):

Mr. Speaker, I have a question for the Minister of Finance which has to do with the question of potash mines. I have asked him some questions in the past on this matter. Since the Premier of Saskatchewan says that he "is dismayed at the actions of Finance Minister Walter Gordon in not allowing tax concessions to solution mines", and he goes on to label this as "rank discrimination", my question is, is the Government now prepared tc revise the tax regulations to allow tax concessions for this type of mining?

Hon. Walter L. Gordon (Minister of Finance):

Mr. Speaker, I am sure I am not expected to comment upon the alleged comments of somebody else. With regard to this particular matter, I would think an appropriate opportunity to raise it would be when the debate on the budget resolutions or income tax bill is resumed.
