Mr. O. C. Trainor (Winnipeg South):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to direct a question to the Minister of Transport. Can the minister say whether it is the intention of Canadian National Railways to reconstruct the Fort Rouge shops recently aestroyed by fire on the present site? In any event will he give the house the assurance that before any final action is taken in this regard the wishes of the employees concerned will be considered.

Mr. O. C. Trainor (Winnipeg South):

should like to direct a question to the Minister of Citizenship and Immigration. Has the minister's attention been drawn to a report in the Winnipeg Tribune of May 24 to the effect that the government contemplates an amendment to the Indian Act which will have the effect of allowing Indians equality of opportunity for the consumption of alcoholic beverages? If so, does this foreshadow the establishment of beer parlours and liquor stores on Indian reservations?

Mr. Trainor:

Mr. Speaker, may I ask for a comment on the answer given by the minister? I am not particularly interested in his reading habits, but would he kindly answer my question?

No doubt something will have to be done. It was my intention, after careful consideration, to let matters go for the time being, because the climate is not such as that which can study the position of the Speaker at the moment. Some hon. members have interjected remarks which I confess I did not hear at the moment. Of those I have heard, I immediately asked clarification. But there were remarks that I did not hear; they are on the record, and it may be a little late now to ask hon. members to do anything about them.

My request to the house-and this is a request I am going to address to all hon. members-is that at the first opportunity the question of my leadership as far as the Speakership is concerned-as a matter of fact, you can go throughout my term of office-be placed before the committee on privileges and elections, and that committee be composed exclusively of members of the opposition- and I would suggest that the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre be made the chairman-

Mr. Trainor:

A supplementary question. Is the minister aware that there is a very strong opinion among the employees that the facilities at Fort Rouge ought to be continued in that area and not transferred to Transcona?
