Mr. Robert Stanbury (York-Scarborough):

Mr. Speaker, I have a question for the Minister of Transport. Could the minister inform the house whether regulations have now been issued under the recent amendments to the Radio Act, or whether they will be issued promptly, to require an ultra high frequency capability in all new television receiving sets sold in Canada?

Hon. Paul Hellyer (Minister of Transport):

Not yet, Mr. Speaker, but I am making a proposal to the government within a few days. It will be my recommendation that this be the case, but it will have to be considered by the government and an announcement will be made in due course.

It is coming along very well, and on behalf of the minister in charge, the Minister of Industry, I would say there will be a statement forthcoming in a day or two.

Mr. Ed. Schreyer (Springfield):

Mr. Speaker, my question is directed to the Acting Minister of Finance or, if there be no such person, to the right hon. Prime Minister. I should like to ask whether the minister's attention has been drawn to the statement by the president of the Montreal Stock Exchange that Canadian investment funds are draining out of the country at critical rates. I should like to ask whether the government accepts this as an accurate statement.

Mr. Schreyer:

Mr. Speaker, I wonder

whether I might have your permission to rephrase my question and ask the Prime Minister whether the government is considering any special course of action to deal with the problem of the critical outflow of Canadian investment funds.

Mr. Speaker, I would not like to have it assumed, in answering that question, that I accept as a fact that there is any such critical outflow. I will be glad to look into the matter.
