Mr. KNIGHT:

Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (C.C.F.)

1. Did the United States government at any time in the years of the late war make a survey of the waters and of the air over the waters of Hudson's Bay and its outlets?
2. If so, did the Canadian government receive a copy of a report resulting from such survey?
Mr. ST. LAURENT:
1. Yes. The United States army air forces, with the permission of the Canadian government, conducted aerial surveys of the northern and eastern approaches to the bay and along the west shore of the bay itself during the summers of 1942, 1943, and 1944.
2. The Canadian government has been provided with copies of all aerial photographs taken in the course of these surveys.
