UPDATING OF YEAR OF MANUFACTURE OF FOREIGN AUTOMOBILES-ACTION TO END PRACTICE

PC

Elmer MacIntosh MacKay

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Elmer M. MacKoy (Central Nova):

Mr. Speaker, I have a question for the Minister of Transport on a subject of great current interest. In view of the findings of a special committee of the Department of Consumer and Corporate Affairs with respect to the updating of some foreign automobiles, could the minister outline the measures his department is contemplating in order to put an end to this practice, and could he give any information as to the number of vehicles that have been so updated in recent years, say over the last five years?

Mr. Speaker:

Order. I have some doubts about the procedural acceptability of the question. The first part of the question invites a statement that should normally be made on motions. The second part of the question seeks statistical material which should not be sought during the question period. I would hope the hon. member might consider raising the matter at the time of adjournment this evening.

POSSIBLE ROUTING OF ARCTIC OIL THROUGH MONTREAL-DELIVERY OF ALBERTA OIL TO MONTREAL BY PIPELINE-GOVERNMENT POLICY

PC

Steve Eugene Paproski

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Steven E. Paproski (Edmonton Centre):

Mr. Speaker, I would like to direct a question to the Minister of Energy, Mines and Resources. In view of the provocative statements made to the Richelieu Club in Montreal on March 22 by the Minister of Indian Affairs and Northern Development, suggesting that Arctic oil be routed through Montreal, I wish to ask if this is an expression of new government policy, and would the minister explain it in detail to the House?

Lucien Lamoureux (Speaker of the House of Commons)

Mr. Speaker:

Order, please. I would hope that the question could be asked directly. The hon. member knows that questions should not be asked about statements made outside the House. However, we can assume that it was asked directly and allow the minister to make a brief reply.

Mr. Paproski:

Mr. Speaker, I wish to direct a supplementary question to the Prime Minister. Can we assume that the government is now prepared to authorize a western pipeline to Montreal for the delivery of Alberta oil to the east?

NDP

Lorne Edmund Nystrom

New Democratic Party

Mr. Lome Nystrom (Yorkton-Melville):

Mr. Speaker, my question, in the absence of the Minister of Manpower and Immigration, is addressed to the acting minister. In view of the recent appointment of the chairman of the Unemployment Insurance Commission as Deputy Minister of the Department of Manpower and Immigration, can the minister inform the House when a new chairman of the commission will be appointed?

Mr. Speaker, can the minister inform us whether or not this means that the services of the manpower department and the Unemployment Insurance Commission will function together or will be merged as they were several years ago?

Mr. O'Connell:

They certainly will be functioning in an integrated manner, but that should not lead to the other conclusion implied in the question.

ADJUSTMENT OF LEVY FOR POLLUTION CONTROL TO PERMIT CONSTRUCTION OF SUPERPORT AT LORNEVILLE, N.B.

PC

Hugh John Flemming

Progressive Conservative

Hon. Hugh John Flemming (Carleton-Charlotte):

Mr. Speaker, I have a question for the Minister of Transport. Is the minister in a position to inform the House that his conversation with Premier Hatfield of New Brunswick has resulted in an adjustment of the oil levy, which will result in work being resumed without further delay on the deepwater superport at Lorneville in Charlotte County, New Brunswick?

Donald Campbell Jamieson (Minister of Transport)

Hon. Donald C. Jamieson (Minister of Transport):

Mr. Speaker, I had what I am sure were mutually satisfactory meetings this morning, first of all with the mayor of Saint John and, second, with the premier of New Brunswick who, in real bipartisan fashion, brought along the Leader of the Opposition. So they were very amicable meetings all the way through. I made some proposals to him. He is now taking them back to consult with his colleagues and presumably with the oil companies concerned. These proposals essentially maintain the integrity of our original position as to the need for a levy, but we have made some concessions which I hope will make it possible for him to get on with the project.
