Mr. Harkness:

Mr. Speaker, my question was will the minister arrange for members of the house to be supplied with copies of the documents he tabled. I think the minister has facilities in his department for reproducing these papers which may not be readily available otherwise.

REQUEST FOR FURTHER REPRESENTATIONS ON AMENDING LEGISLATION On the orders of the day:

Maurice Allard

Independent Progressive Conservative

Mr. Maurice Allard (Sherbrooke):

I wish to put a question to the Minister of Justice and Attorney General.

To meet the wishes of several Canadian members, is it the minister's intention to reconsider his decision on the omnibus bill so as to allow a separate vote on abortion and homosexuality and to hold a free vote on these two questions of morals and conscience?

Hon. P.-E. Trudeau@Minister of Justice

Unless I am mistaken, Mr. Speaker, I did not announce a decision, I expressed the wish, which is still valid, that when the wording of the bill is studied, there will be much less opposition thereto than there is now. Once again, it is a wish and the policy on this matter should be announced by the government in due course.

J. Michael Forrestall

Progressive Conservative

Mr. J. M. Forrestall (Halifax):

Mr. Speaker, I have a supplementary question for the minister that is really in the nature of a representation. I should like to ask whether he would now consider referring that clause of the bill to the standing committee on health and welfare so it may be studied together with the subject matter of the private bills now before the committee.

Hon. P.-E. Trudeau@Minister of Justice

The hon. member for Sherbrooke referred to several clauses.

As far as the clause which the hon. member has in mind is concerned, the studies which will be made in the standing committee on health and welfare will surely serve in later discussions.

Malcolm MacInnis

Mr. Donald Maclnnis (Cape Breton South):

Mr. Speaker, I have a question for the Prime

Minister with respect to the correspondence between himself and Premier Smith which was tabled today. I ask the Prime Minister whether he is aware that his government promised aid over and above the aid which has been set forth in the correspondence and which is to be given under certain conditions to the Sydney steel operation. It is this further assistance that the government of Nova Scotia and the Sydney steel workers are now waiting for.

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

No, Mr. Speaker, but no doubt Premier Smith will wish to discuss this matter over the week end, when he will be here. I understand from radio reports that that is his intention.

Malcolm MacInnis

Mr. Maclnnis (Cape Breton South):

A supplementary question to the Minister of National Health and Welfare. I ask the minister to avail himself of the opportunity to speak to his Prime Minister and to the premier of Nova Scotia over the week end to further the argument that he has been advancing for the government to be prepared to assist above and beyond that assistance which is spoken of in the correspondence.
