FEDERAL.PROVINCIAL RELATIONS JURISDICTION OVER SABLE ISLAND

PC

Lloyd Roseville Crouse

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Lloyd R. Crouse (South Shore):

Mr. Speaker, I wish to direct a question to the Minister of Justice. In view of the possibility of oil being discovered on or adjacent to Sable Island, will the Minister of Justice indicate whether this island is considered an offshore territory of Canada over which the federal government claims complete jurisdiction or is this island considered part of the province of Nova Scotia?

Not only is that a question of geography, it is also probably a legal question. I should like to take it as notice.

INTERNATIONAL GRAINS ARRANGEMENT-DISCUSSION OF STATUS WITH REPRESENTATIVES OF EXPORTING NATIONS

PC

Richard Russell Southam

Progressive Conservative

Mr. R. R. Southam (Qu'Appelle-Moose Mountain):

I have a question for the Minister without Portfolio who reports to the House for the Canadian Wheat Board. In view of the minister's announcement that a meeting will be held in Ottawa on May 4 and 5 with representatives of major wheat exporting nations, including a spokesman for the European Common Market, to discuss, among other things, limitations of wheat acreages, can the minister advise the House whether discussions on the present status of the International Grains Arrangement will take place, and will he and his advisers impress upon the United States representatives the importance of strengthening the International Grains Arrangement to prevent any further pricecutting by our competitors?

The meetings in question are essentially to discuss production policies. There will be meetings later among interested countries in connection with the International Grains Arrangement. Of course we are always making our views known to our friends in the United States about the importance of the International Grains Arrangement.

have a question for the Minister of National Health and Welfare. In view of the continuing concern over the level of air pollution in our cities and the minister's previous response to a question I asked him when he said that no clean air legislation would be brought in at this session, can the minister advise whether any special arrangements such as monitoring are being carried out at the federal level to meet this continuing serious problem?

Mr. H. E. Stafford (Elgin):

My question is for the Minister of Manpower and Immigration.
