Hon. George C. Marler (Minister of Transport):

Mr. Speaker, I table herewith, in English and French, the report of the board of inquiry which my predecessor, the Hon. Lionel Chevrier, established to investigate the collision between a T.C.A. North Star aircraft and an R.C.A.F. Harvard aircraft near Moose Jaw on April 9, 1954. The conclusions of this report are such that I think I can add nothing to the statement made by my colleague, the Right Hon. Minister of Trade and Commerce (Mr. Howe), at the last session of this house; and for this reason I decided to hold the document for tabling at this session rather than release it in the interim.
I should like to add that the recommendations of this board have received the most attentive study by my department. Some of these recommendations have already been implemented, while others are still under consideration.
