Mrs. Cossitt:

Mr. Speaker, I would like to ask the Parliamentary Secretary about Question No. 234 which is approaching its eight-year anniversary on the Order Paper. It was first placed on the Order Paper by my predecessor, the late Hon. Member for Leeds-Grenville, on June 11, 1976. The question asks who have Air Canada passes. As a matter of fact, I raised this matter during Question Period last June, and I was assured then that the question would be answered soon. Would the Parliamentary Secretary give me an indication of when the question will be answered, or does the Government really have something to hide?
