Hon. W. G. Dinsdale (Brandon-Souris):

Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Minister of Consumer and Corporate Affairs. In light of the interest being shown by district six of the United Steelworkers of America in the Prices and Incomes Commission, will the "minister of consumer affairs and high prices" inform the House if the commission has been instructed to investigate the inflationary price increases announced by Inco?

Mr. Stanley Knowles (Winnipeg North Centre):

Mr. Speaker, I wish to direct a question to the Minister of National Health and Welfare. It relates to a matter which has been dhe subject of questions on the Order Paper and also the subject of correspondence. It is of great urgency to quite a few people. Can the minister say when a reciprocal agreement between Canada and the Federal Republic of Germany on the question of pensions will be concluded? .

John Angus MacLean

Progressive Conservative

Hon. J. A. MacLean (Malpeque):

I wish to direct a question to the Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Transport. Perhaps he would be kind enough to take it as notice if he does not have an immediate reply. What provision is being made to have immediately available a reserve ship on the Borden-Cape Tormentine run this winter in case of a breakdown of either of the two operating ships, in view of the fact that apparently it is the intention to have the Confederation and the Lucy Maud Montgomery tied up in Halifax for the winter months?

Mr. Speaker, I have a question for the Secretary of State.

The Canada Council has just increased its grants in aid of publishing and University exchanges from $119,300 to $800,000 and has announced that other grants would be increased later. Would the minister tell us whether such increases are permissible under the austerity program?
