Hon. Herb Gray (Minister of National Revenue):

Mr. Speaker, now that the Prime Minister has had the opportunity to visit Timiskaming and to use the facilities at Earlton airport, would he give immediate consideration to the rebuilding of those totally inadequate terminal facilities at the Department of Transport airport?

Mr. Speaker, I will certainly take up this matter with the Minister of Transport. I landed there without any difficulty and was happy to see that there was enough room for the many Liberals who had come to greet me.

I regret that the hon. member did not follow the example of the hon. member for Prince Edward-Hastings of sticking close to me to get into the pictures that were taken.

Mr. Hees:

I rise on a question of privilege, Mr. Speaker. The Prime Minister was very obviously standing close to me in Prince Edward-Hastings to get some publicity there.

Mr. Paul Yewchuk (Athabasca):

Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Minister of Agriculture. In light of the severe outbreak of black flies in some parts of Alberta, notably Athabasca, does the federal government intend partially to assist farmers who have suffered financial losses as a result of this outbreak?
