DELAY IN PAYMENT OF SUBSIDIES ON DEEP SEA DRAGGERS


On the orders of the day:


PC

Lloyd Roseville Crouse

Progressive Conservative

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

I have a question for the Minister of Fisheries. Since authority to pay subsidies on deep sea fishing draggers was transferred from the Maritime Commission to the Department of Fisheries there has been a lengthy delay in the payment of federal subsidies to provincial loan boards. Will the Minister of Fisheries investigate the cause of this delay so that no undue hardship may be imposed upon shipyards and shipbuilders in the Atlantic provinces?

Hon. H. J. Robichaud (Minister of Fisheries):

I wish to advise the hon. Member that one of the main reasons for delay, if there has been delay, was the need to draft new regulations in order to make subsidies applicable under the policy changes which took place some months ago. I wish to assure the hon. Member that everything is being done to take care of all applications as received.

By way of an interim report I may say that Dr. Donald has been very active since his appointment. He has been in touch with all the interests involved in the Cape Breton coal problem.

REPORTED CONFLICT IN STATEMENTS RESPECTING COLOUR TELEVISION


On the orders of the day:


PC

Richard Russell Southam

Progressive Conservative

Mr. R. R. Southam (Moose Mountain):

should like to direct a question to the Secretary of State in connection with his recent statement that Canada would have colour television in 1967 at an estimated cost of something more than $15 million. How does the Minister reconcile this statement with that of Mr. Alphonse Ouimet, President of the C.B.C., who was quoted by the Toronto Daily Star as saying recently in an address to the Canadian Public Relations Society that it would take 10 to 15 years to convert to colour television at a cost of up to $40 million?
