July 3, 1952

Hon. R. W. Mayhew (Minister of Fisheries):

Mr. Speaker, the province of New Brunswick has not made any claim for assistance. I suppose the hon. member is referring to storm damage, and we have had no submission from the province of New Brunswick asking for assistance.

Hon. R. W. Mayhew (Minister of Fisheries):

Mr. Speaker, on Saturday the hon. member for Queens (Mr. McLure) asked for more definite information as to the location of the new scallop bed recently discovered in the Northumberland strait area. This scallop bed lies approximately nine and one-half sea miles east, northeast, (magnetic) off the Richibucto harbour buoy. It runs northeast and southwest, is roughly oval in shape and approximately one and one-half miles long and one-half mile wide.

Using the British Admiralty chart No. 2034 or the U.S. navy hydrographic office chart No. 1066 for plotting, the positions are as follows:

Southern end 46 deg. 51' 00" N. lat.

64 deg. 37' 00" W. long.

Northern end 46 deg. 51' 30" N. lat.

64 deg. 36' 00" W. long.

The bed is marked at each end by staff buoys flying red and white flags.

There was a biological bulletin issued on June 25 regarding this bed, and I might also add that an item about its discovery appeared in Trade News of May.
