Mr. Robichaud:

Yes, Mr. Speaker. I have issued instructions to officers in the field that when fishermen apply for their 1968 lobster fishing licences they should be asked whether they are in favour of or against lobster fishing on Sundays. I can assure the hon. member that if it is the wish of the majority of lobster fishermen that no lobster fishing should be carried out on Sundays, the regulations will be amended to that effect.

Mr. Robichaud:

It may be that the hon. member would prefer to go into these details when we are considering the bill clause by clause. As you have just said, Mr. Speaker, normally on second reading we do not refer to the individual clauses of a bill. The remarks which the hon. member is making now are really proper on either clause 2 or clause 1 of the bill.

Mr. Robichaud:

Mr. Chairman, I believe the fish inspection regulation applies in some cases to the movement of fish from province to province. However, the Fish Inspection Act is only effective in a province if approval by order in council of the province concerned has been received. I know that it applies in several provinces. In the Atlantic provinces, for example, where the fishing industry is of major importance, the fish inspection regulations have been accepted in most cases in respect of the movement of fish from province to province. The Fish Inspection Act is

applicable in respect of fish moving from province to province if such fish is to be exported. This applies particularly with regard to freshwater fish which moves, for instance, from Manitoba to Ontario before it is exported.

Clause 1 agreed to.

Clause 2 agreed to.

On clause 3-Dealing in tainted, decomposed or unwholesome fish.

Mr. Robichaud:

I do not have the details but I will obtain them for the hon. member. I know there are a number of centres. We have a central laboratory in Halifax. This is the central laboratory for the eastern division. We have one at Shediac, New Brunswick, and three or four in Nova Scotia. There is one at Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. Should the owner not be satisfied with inspections at local laboratories he may take advantage of the central laboratory in Halifax. He may be represented there or appear himself to witness the inspection.
