Thomas Clement (Tommy) Douglas

New Democratic Party

Mr. Douglas:

A supplementary question, Mr. Speaker. May I ask the Prime Minister whether the legislative program which the government has in mind will have to await the report of the cabinet committee and the task force which has been set up, or has the government now a legislative program which it intends to present to the house this year?

Mr. Pearson:

There are items in the program that have already been announced to the house that concern the subject raised by my hon. friend. I would hope that the task force in question will be able to produce a report and the government will be able to make that a government report in the form of a white paper in time to assist the government and the house in working out further steps in that direction.

Mr. Frank Howard (Skeena):

A supplementary question, Mr. Speaker. I would ask the right hon. Prime Minister whether he would object to including in the various private bills regarding insurance companies and the like which are currently before the house a provision for Canadian ownership similar to that contained in the Bank Act.

David Lewis

New Democratic Party

Mr. David Lewis (York South):

Mr. Speaker, I have a question for the right hon. Prime Minister arising from answers he gave earlier about foreign ownership, particularly of insurance companies, under federal charter. I ask the question because I was bewildered by the previous answer. Is the right hon. gentleman saying to the house that there is now legislation limiting the foreign ownership of insurance companies under federal charter?

Raymond Langlois

Mr. Raymond Langlois (Meganiic):

Mr. Speaker, my question is directed to the Secretary of State for External Affairs and is in reference to Euzrem Rietzik. I will spell that name for the benefit of Hansard, because

I have seen it spelled in different ways. Has the minister any further information to give the house as to the whereabouts of this man, or is he still working on the case?

A supplementary question, Mr. Speaker. Would the minister care to ask his officials whether they can ascertain if that is the name he took when he flew in from Montreal airport to Ottawa on August 3 last?

Mr. Speaker, I understand there has been some publicity with a view to getting possible submissions under certain terms and conditions. I do not have any document at hand, but I think I could get it quite easily.

Mr. Ricard:

A supplementary question,

Mr. Speaker. Would the hon. minister inform the house whether he has received a telegram from the Catholic Farmers Union and other representatives of the farmers to the effect that this decision would be against their interests?

John Whitney Pickersgill (Minister of Transport)

Mr. Pickersgill:

There has been no decision, so whether or not it conforms with their interests would be hard to determine. This is only a possibility, and I can assure the hon. gentleman, as I have assured the minister of agriculture of Quebec who sent me a telegram to which I replied this morning, that the interests of the consumers of domestic grain

in the Quebec region will be fully safeguarded if and when there is a lease or sale of this elevator, and it is by no means sure that this will ever take place.
