Mr. Stanfield:

A supplementary question, Mr. Speaker. Are we to assume from the statements of the Minister of Labour yesterday that the government has abandoned the guideline which was laid down by the Prime Minister in the house prior to the strike taking place?

Pierre Elliott Trudeau (Prime Minister)

Liberal

Mr. Trudeau:

Mr. Speaker, the hon. member's understanding is exactly contrary to that which was said in the house. When asked a few weeks ago about guidelines, I said there were no guidelines, and I went on to add other things. The hon. member is implying that there are guidelines. Of course there are none.

AIR TRANSPORT

SUGGESTED HALIFAX LANDING TO ACCOMMODATE ATLANTIC AREA PASSENGERS

PC

John Patrick (Pat) Nowlan

Progressive Conservative

Mr. J. P. Nowlan (Annapolis Valley):

I have a supplementary question for the Minister of Transport, if there is a Minister of Transport in the house. Due to the inconvenience and hardship caused by the Air Canada strike to certain people on the Atlantic side of this nation, would the minister check with his officials or with the officials of the Canadian Transport Commission to explore the possibility of the landing in Halifax of international carriers now taking off from Montreal. I have in mind in particular B.O.A.C., which flies from Montreal. At present people have to journey from Halifax and other parts of the Atlantic area to catch the plane in Montreal, and even so the service between Montreal and Halifax is not good.

WHEAT-TWO PRICE SYSTEM AND ACREAGE REDUCTION PAYMENTS

NDP

Alfred Pullen Gleave (N.D.P. Caucus Chair)

New Democratic Party

Mr. A. P. Gleave (Saskaioon-Biggar):

should like to direct a question to the Minister of Agriculture. In the light of statements made recently by the minister, will he inform the house if it is the government's intention to institute a two price system for wheat and a program of compensation for acreage reduction on the prairies. Can he also inform the house of the government policy on these two matters.
