Mr. T. L. CHURCH (Broadview):

I wish to ask the mover of this resolution a question. This committee has been appointed periodically for many years, in fact since the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation has been in existence, and it seems to me that its meetings have been held to too great an extent in camera. Moreover, the reports presented to the house are never considered by the house. When the committee was appointed last year it was supposed to report on the question whether the $2.50 fee should be abolished, having regard to changed conditions. I would like to find out from the minister whether, when the present committee is appointed, it will meet in Ottawa, whether its proceedings will be open to the public, and whether its reports will be presented for consideration by the house, and presented in time to allow of such consideration.
