Hon. Marc Lalonde (Minister of Energy, Mines and Resources):
Madam Speaker, I should like to draw the attention of the hon. member to the act that was passed by this House in 1978. If he reads the Northern Pipeline Act, he will see clearly what its provisions are. I have already stated in this House, and 1 repeat, that nothing will be done by the government that is contrary to the provisions of the act passed by Parliament.
