Hon. J. J. McCann (Minister of National Revenue):

Mr. Speaker, yesterday the member for Nanaimo asked whether it was true, as reported in the Montreal Gazette of Thursday, April 11, that the customs officers at Dorval airport were enforcing a provincial ban on the circulation of certain United States magazines in the province of Quebec.

The answer is that they were not enforcing any provincial ban. The magazines specifically mentioned have all been prohibited entry under tariff item 1201. If this classification under the prohibitory tariff item agrees with any ban that the provincial government may have placed on these same publications, it is a coincidence.
