Mr. F. G. J. Hahn (New Westminster):

Mr. Speaker, I wish to address a question to the Minister of National Health and Welfare, notice of which I sent him earlier this day. In view of a reply to questions 4 and 5 on sessional paper No. 224 tabled in my name respecting the use of orange peels with colour added for the purpose of making marmalade, that the colour so used contains a coal tar substance, and the suitability of this colour for foods is now under investigation, would the minister consider advising the public to the effect that orange peels so coloured possibly should not be used for the purpose of making marmalade until such time as the results of the investigation are made known?
