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.

Mr. Robichaud:

Mr. Chairman, since the new regulations have been in force there have been three or four cases where there has been an appeal. In all these cases no further representations were made to me by the owner. This led me to believe that they were satisfied concerning the appeal. There has been one case, however, in respect of which the matter is before the court. I believe this is the only one. I would not be in a position to discuss it now because I do not believe the case has been settled. It is a fact that the industry is taking advantage of these new regulations, particularly in respect of the right of appeal. I must accept the appeal because the regulations state that the minister shall order a reinspection. This is done at once. There has never been any case where there has been undue delay in respect of the reinspection.

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.
