Mr. Speaker, I have a question for the Minister of Indian Affairs and Northern Development. Can the minister say whether there will be any further consultation between his department, the Nova Scotia government and interested persons in the area with respect to the boundaries of the proposed national park in the eastern shore area of Nova Scotia?

Mr. Speaker, we are discussing that problem with the Nova Scotia authorities. I have myself discussed that project last week with Premier Regan and we think that we have reached an understanding which will be acceptable to all those concerned.

Mr. John L. Skoberg (Moose law):

Mr. Speaker, my question is addressed to the Minister of Labour. Having regard to the alleged wildcat strike of longshoremen in Montreal, Trois-Rivieres and Quebec City and the lockout on May 30 by the Maritime Employers' Association, can the minister tell us whether his department has made any headway in settling this dispute and, if not, what action does he contemplate taking?

This morning I sent a telegram to the president of the longshoremen's union and to the president of the Maritime Employers' Association requesting them to reply today as to their willingness to submit the differences between them to arbitration, which is the procedure provided for in the Canada Labour Code as well as in their own collective agreement.

Mr. lack Marshall (Humber-St. George's-St. Barbe):

Mr. Speaker, my question is addressed to the Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Manpower and Immigration. Since many local initiative projects are being stultified by lack of funds, can the hon. gentleman say what action the government intends to take in response to the many requests which have been made for the allocation of additional funds and the extension of the time within which projects can be completed?

EFFECT OF LONGSHOREMEN'S STRIKE ON SHIPMENTS FROM MONTREAL-POSSIBLE ALTERNATIVE SHIPPING FACILITIES

PC

William Gordon Ritchie

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Gordon Ritchie (Dauphin):

Mr. Speaker, I have a question for the minister in charge of the Wheat Board. Can he inform the House whether grain shipments out of Montreal have been suspended or curtailed because of recent labour difficulties there? Can he also say whether alternative shipping facilities are available should the work stoppage be prolonged?

Hon. Otto E. Lang (Minister of Justice):

Some individual shipments were certainly delayed. There are, of course, alternative loading facilities available throughout the east and these are being used to continue the very rapid movement of grain.

CANADIAN TRANSPORT COMMISSION-REQUEST FOR REVIEW OF FUNCTIONS AND RESPONSIBILITIES TO DETERMINE IF BEING FULFILLED

Charles Humbert Thomas

Mr. Charles H. Thomas (Moncton):

Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Prime Minister. In view of the widespread concern about reduced rail passenger services, escalating rail and truck freight rates and dissatisfaction with air carrier services, is the government considering a review of the responsibilities and powers of the Canadian Transport Commission to determine whether this body is performing the functions envisaged for it by Parliament when the National Transportation Act was passed?

I cannot point to any specific review being carried out at this time with the intent the hon. member has mentioned, but all governmental bodies and agencies are, of course, under constant survey by the government to make sure that they act within the terms of the relevant statutes.

Mr. Speaker:

Order, please. We have gone beyond the time allotted to the question period. If there are supple-mentaries on this matter, so wide in its connotations, they could be put tomorrow. I think no serious harm would be done by the delay. The Chair will recognize the hon. member for Battleford-Kindersley who has been trying to ask a question during the whole of the question period.
