Mr. Gerard Laprise (Chapleau):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to put a question to the Minister of Public Works.

During the last session the former minister of public works stated that he would soon announce the construction of public buildings in the city of Hull. My question is this. Does the present Minister of Public Works intend to announce soon the construction of federal buildings in the city of Hull?

SUGGESTED FRENCH NAME FOR NEW ICEBREAKER


On the orders of the day:


RA

Lucien Plourde

Ralliement Créditiste

Mr. Lucien Plourde (Quebec West):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to put a question to the Minister of Transport following the statement he made yesterday to the effect that a Canadian icebreaker would be named "John Cabot".

Could the minister tell the house why this icebreaker will be named "John Cabot", whereas it is probably named after Jean Cabot-a fine French name-a Venetian navigator at the service of England, who, with his son Sebastian, discovered part of the coasts of Newfoundland, Labrador and Florida in 1497?

Mr. Pickersgill:

I think, Sir, it requires more historical research than I have had the opportunity to give at this time to clear it up right now. I should like to think about it over the week end.

PC

Howard Russell MacEwan

Progressive Conservative

Mr. H. Russell MacEwan (Pictou):

I have a question for the Minister of Labour. Perhaps I should direct it to the Minister of Transport, since he is also concerned with this subject. Has a decision yet been made with regard to the provision of alternative port facilities either at Mulgrave or Port Hastings?
