March 5, 1935

Mr. MERCIER (Laurier-Outremont):

The session before last I put a question to the minister as to what was being done about deepening the harbour of Montreal. At that time the minister gave me a very satisfactory answer when he said that a board of engineers and experts from the department had been formed to study the deepening of the harbour of Montreal between that city and lake St. Peter. Since then I understand work has been carried on by this board of experts, but the situation in the port of Montreal towards the end of the summer season when the water level is very low is important. Can the minister give any information to the committee, the citizens of Montreal and the shipping interests as to what progress is being made in this work of deepening the channel in the harbour of Montreal?

Mr. Speaker, I should like to direct a question to the Minister of Agriculture (Mr. Weir). Yesterday the minister gave a complete answer with regard to charges to the effect that adulterated butter was being put on the Montreal market. Has the minister any further information he could give the house to-day?

Mr. J. A. MERCIER (Laurier-Outremont):

On January 24, the Prime Minister, on the discussion on a proposed national housing policy, said that at a later date he would state whether a special or a select standing committee should be named to consider the matter. Is he in a position to say when this question will be brought up?
