Mr. Robichaud:

If the house agrees, it might be more appropriate for me to explain this bill in the committee of the whole. The bill consists of three minor amendments to the Fish Inspection Act. It might be more appropriate for me to give my explanation when the bill is before the committee of the whole.

Mr. Robichaud:

The inspection is not normally done by the Fisheries Research Board. It is done by the fish inspection branch of the Department of Fisheries. However, there have been cases involving dispute concerning the decision taken by the fish inspection branch when samples have been sent direct to the board, for example, to confirm bacteria counts or for other major reasons. I can well understand the concern of the hon. member that there should be very little time elapse between when the samples are taken and when the inspection takes place.

At different points along the coast close to major fish landing points we have fish inspection laboratories where inspections are carried out. We have received very few complaints. In fact I do not know of any since we established the new inspection laboratory on the northeast coast of New Brunswick, from where I had received some complaints in the past. There are four major fish centres in that particular area. Since that new laboratory has

been established we have received no complaints from the industry concerning delays in respect of inspection of samples taken by our officers.

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. Speaker, I am not in a

position to tell the hon. member what branch, if any, of departments of the United States government has been contacted, but I am aware that the Atomic Energy Control Board has been following this incident since the bombs were dropped, and we have the assurance from them to the effect that there is no danger to our Canadian waters.
