Right Hon. P. E. Trudeau (Prime Minister):

Mr. Speaker, your instincts and your knowledge are great. You took the words out of my mouth. I can confirm the basis of the doubts. In fact, I do not know how much Mr. Turner is earning. I do not know the answers to the questions which the Right Hon. Member is asking. However, I am sure Mr. Turner will take notice of those questions.

Right Hon. P. E. Trudeau (Prime Minister):

Mr. Speaker, I do not know the answer to that question either. I know that, traditionally, the transition between one Government and another-and the Right Hon. Member has two experiences in that regard, and so do I with him-generally takes about a fortnight. I have told Mr. Turner that I would be ready to offer my resignation at a convenient time within that general time frame, a few days earlier or a few days later. I do not know what his decision will be.

Right Hon. P. E. Trudeau (Prime Minister):

Mr. Speaker, I have not given any such specific directions to Mr. Osbaldeston. I indicated my confidence in Mr. Osbaldeston and in Mr. Turner. Both gentlemen, I am sure, would want to make sure

that any possibility of conflict of interest would not arise if there were some document dealing with some subject with which Mr. Turner, as director of a company, had been involved. I am sure both gentlemen will be very aware of that danger because of the suspicious nature of the Opposition.

Right Hon. P. E. Trudeau (Prime Minister):

Mr. Speaker, I am sure that your instincts are to interrupt the Hon. Member and indicate that this is not, as well, anything under my purview. Whether Mr. Turner has sought legal advice or not, he certainly has not done so through me.
