Mr. John O. Probe (Regina City):

Mr. Speaker, in keeping with the pleasing custom which from time to time has been observed in the house, I rise on a matter of privilege to inform the house that this morning there arrived in the city of Ottawa a contingent from my city of Regina, the Regina Capitals hockey team-

Mr. John O. Probe (Regina City):

I should

like to ask a question of the Minister of Transport, of which I have given notice. Will the minister please inform the house as to the position taken by his department with respect to the age limit of members of the Canadian merchant marine eligible for educational benefits provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs, and under what circumstances this age limit has been waived for extenuating reasons?

Mr. Probe:

Under this item I should like to make a correction, offer an apology and ask a question, if I may. Last Monday, at page 2311 of Hansard, I referred to certain telegrams from officials of government departments to members of parliament, dealing with official matters, which had been sent collect. While referring to specific departments I mentioned the Department of Labour and in particular the deputy minister of labour. My good friend the Minister of Labour came over here in about ten seconds flat and in his kindly way, if I may use his phrase, told me he thought I was wrong. I looked up my files and was unable to find any telegrams sent collect by the deputy minister of labour. The telegrams in question were from the Department of External Affairs and the Department of Mines and Resources, sent to me collect on official business. May I ask the Minister of Transport, under this item which has to do with telephones, telegrams and postage, whether his department is in the habit of sending collect telegrams to hon. members in the course of handling official correspondence.

Mr. Probe:

From time to time the Minister of Trade and Commerce has announced in the house incentive bonuses to various industries for various purposes in connection with the urgent needs of Canadian consumers. My understanding of most of these incentive bonuses is that there has been a payment on the part of the government to certain industries, and that that has been the end of the matter. No guarantee is forthcoming from the industry as to what will be the quid pro quo so far as the Canadian consumer is concerned. I am willing to stand corrected if my understanding is wrong. What industries

are concerned in this sum of $135,000 asked in addition to the amount passed last session? What amount goes to each of the industries, and what is the quid pro quo to be received for guaranteeing these sums?
