Liberal

Mr. Stanbury:

Mr. Speaker, I have not offered to supply a copy of the transcript to anyone who might choose to bring an appeal against any decision of the Canadian Transport Commission. I am not sure that would be appropriate. What I have offered is access to the copy that I have, and I am quite willing to have it go to Windsor if that is more convenient to Dr. Brown-John. I have not had any request from him up to this point.

ALLEGED REFUSAL BY INTERNATIONAL TELEPHONE AND TELEGRAPH CORPORATION TO PERMIT VISIT TO RESOLUTION ISLAND BY NORTHWEST TERRITORIES COUNCILLOR

PC

Heath Nelson Macquarrie

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Heath Macquarrie (Hillsborough):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to direct a question to the Acting Prime Minister. It is based on a very serious report alleging that a member of the Northwest Territories Council while on a visit to his constituency was, when he attempted to visit Resolution Island in Frobisher Bay, forbidden entry to that island by the International Telephone and Telegraph Corporation of the United States. Has the minister heard of this report and has he done anything to convey the view

Inquiries of the Ministry

of this Parliament and the view of the government that Hon. Jean-Luc Pepin (Minister oi Industry, Trade and sovereignty in the Arctic rests in the government and the Commerce): Mr. Speaker, I remind the hon. member of people of Canada? the efforts made by the Minister of Labour.

Hon. E. ]. Benson (Minister of National Defence): Mr. Speaker, perhaps I could answer that question. That particular article has come to my attention and I have asked that an investigation be made. It may be that entry was forbidden for security reasons. I am not convinced of that and I am having the matter looked into at present.

Mr. Speaker, I wanted to direct a question to the Minister of Labour but in his absence I will direct it to the Acting Prime Minister.

Hon. Mitchell Sharp (Acting Prime Minister):

Mr. Speaker, it is my understanding that Judge Alan Gold is expected to summon the parties to arbitration imminently. The Minister of Labour has told the press that he expects the arbitration to get under way quickly and to be over quickly.

Mr. Raymond Rock (Lachine):

Mb'. Speaker, may I direct a supplementary question to the Minister of Industry, Trade and Commerce. In light of reports that many shipping firms are pulling their business activities out of Montreal and going to other ports as a result of the dock strike, can the minister indicate what steps he intends to take to help the port of Montreal to regain its former status?

STUDENT SUMMER EMPLOYMENT PROGRAM-REQUEST FOR RETURN TO WEEKLY RATHER THAN HOURLY PAY SCALE

NDP

Winona Grace MacInnis

New Democratic Party

Mrs. Grace Maclnnis (Vancouver-Kingsway):

Mr. Speaker, my question is for the President of the Treasury Board. As the government's career oriented summer work program was designed to assist students financially and as this year's change from a weekly to an hourly pay scale will result in loss of income of up to $130 per student for the summer's work, will the minister consider a return to the former pay scale in order to enable students to save more money toward meeting greatly increased university fees?

Mrs. Maclnnis:

As this year it was not explained to students applying for this program on the new hourly basis that the summer work week in the government service shrinks to 35 hours, with a resulting loss of salary, will the government make good this lack of explanation by paying these students what they would have received on last year's basis?
