STATISTICS CANADA

REQUEST THAT VITAL STATISTICS FOR BURLINGTON, ONTARIO, BE SEPARATED FROM THOSE FOR HAMILTON

PC

Alfred Dryden Hales

Progressive Conservative

Mr. A. D. Hales (Wellington):

Mr. Speaker, may I direct my question to the Minister of Industry, Trade and Commerce who is responsible for Statistics Canada. As vital statistics for Burlington, Ontario, with a population of 90,000, are included with those of Metropolitan Hamilton, thus denying these people the services of Statistics Canada, will the minister give consideration to correcting this injustice?

Mr. Max Saltsman (Waterloo):

Mr. Speaker, my question is lor the Minister of Consumer and Corporate Affairs in his capacity as ombudsman for the consumer. Is the minister following the hearings of the Alberta Energy and Resources Conservation Board, from which it appears that there will be a substantial increase in the price of gas which will affect every consumer of Canada? Has the minister a representative at those hearings and does he intend to make representations on behalf of the consumers?

IMPLEMENTATION OF HAZARDOUS PRODUCTS REGULATIONS IN REGARD TO CRIBS, PLAYPENS, WALKER-JUMPERS AND PACIFIERS

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Steven Paproski (Edmonton Centre):

Mr. Speaker, may I direct a supplementary question to the Minister of Consumer and Corporate Affairs. If the minister cannot answer, perhaps the Prime Minister can. Is the government making a study of baby cribs, playpens, walker-jumpers and pacifiers in order to implement regulations under the Hazardous Products Act? If not, why not?

Mr. Doug Rowland (Selkirk):

Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Minister of National Defence. It is my understanding that the government is determined to purchase the Scorpion as a replacement for the Centurion tank. Would the minister indicate whether these vehicles will be manufactured in Canada, whether the contract has been let, what the amount of it is, and how many units will be constructed?

Hon. E. ]. Benson (Minister of National Defence): Mr. Speaker, I never said that we would purchase that parinquiries of the Ministry

ticular vehicle. Negotiations have been going on with respect to that vehicle. We have considered others. It is probable we will purchase that vehicle, but it has not been decided at this point.
