Otto Emil Lang (Minister of Transport; Minister responsible for the Canadian Wheat Board)


Hon. Otto E. Lang (Minister of Transport):

Mr. Speaker, I think the question of the chairmanship may be decided in the very near future, although I must say that the acting chairman, Mr. Pierre Taschereau, has been doing a superb job in his role with Air Canada.
I am hopeful that the legislation which is now in a determined form can come forward, but that may depend upon the discussions the House leaders will have about how fast it can be brought forward. That might be a suitable time and vehicle with which to broaden discussion and include the annual report, but if that does not happen conveniently, I am prepared
Privilege-Mr. MacLean
to discuss with hon. members on both sides of this House how we can best get the questions relating to Air Canada before a House committee.
