TRANSPORT

PC

Elmer MacIntosh MacKay

Mr. Elmer MacKay (Central Nova):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity pursuant to Standing Order 43, involving the chartering of vessels by the Department of Transport, specifically on the matter of the chartering of the Princess of Tasmania for use as a ferry between Newfoundland and Nova Scotia. Since the five-year charter will cost over $3 million for this British registered vessel, which could have been purchased by the government for less than $2 million, and this amount is now supplemented by substantial extra conversion expenses occasioned by stricter enforcement of British shipping regulations, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Egmont (Mr. MacDonald):

That this matter be referred to the Standing Committee on Transport for detailed investigation.
