PRINTING OF OBJECTIONS IN SEPARATE BOOKLET

LIB

Lucien Lamoureux (Speaker of the House of Commons)

Liberal

Mr. Speaker:

As hon. members know, some 27 objections pursuant to section 20 of the Electoral Boundaries Readjustment Act which have been filed with me have been printed from time to time as appendices to Votes and Proceedings.

It has been suggested that the convenience of hon. members would be better served if these objections were brought together in one publication. If the house will agree I will make the necessary arrangements to have these objections printed as a separate booklet. Is it agreed?

Mr. Yanakis:

Mr. Speaker, I am introducing this bill to call the government's attention to the direct link between excessive cigarette smoking, which I consider to be a real social ill, and the causes of lung cancer, respiratory ailments and heart diseases, which are confirmed by specialists.

I think that in order to call the attention of smokers to that hazard and to warn the future generation of smokers, the government should urge the manufacturers to print on their packages of cigarettes: "Warning-

Smoking a package of cigarettes can be dangerous".

Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.

Right Hon. L. B. Pearson (Prime Minister):

No, Mr. Speaker, no such request was made. I discussed with the Prime Minister of Quebec the question of the appointment of a successor to the late Lieutenant Governor, and at that time learned from the Prime Minister of Quebec something of the circumstances of the fire. He is going to report to me in greater detail. I agree with my hon. friend that the

Inquiries of the Ministry circumstances, in so far as I know them at present, would seem to warrant an investigation into the origin of the fire. I shall be glad to discuss this matter with the Prime Minister of Quebec.
