Mr. F. Oberle (Prince George-Peace River) moved
that Bill C-264, to provide for the establishment of the Alaska-Yukon Highway Authority (Alaska Highway), be read the second time and referred to the Standing Committee on Indian Affairs and Northern Development.
He said: Madam Speaker, it was an important decision on the part of the House of Commons to allow this bill to come before us in today's private members' hour, which was to be just about the last private members' hour in this session. I am delighted at the fact that even after this most important measure has been referred to committee it will be possible for other private members to bring other matters before the House which are undoubtedly equally important.
