December 13, 1979

Mr. Charles Haliburton (South West Nova):

Mr. Speaker, my question is directed to the Minister of Fisheries and Oceans. The minister has on a number of occasions indicated his desire that hon. members and others should express their views and participate in the making of decisions relevant to fisheries policy, particularly licensing policy.

In view of the fact that departmental studies are under way or completed, can the minister advise when the Standing Committee on Fisheries and Forestry might be asked to examine the proposals of Messrs. Levelton and Sinclair affecting the licensing on our respective coasts?

Hon. James A. McGrath (Minister of Fisheries and

Oceans): Mr. Speaker, as the hon. member has indicated, I have ordered a complete fisheries policy review and I would like very much to include this House in that policy review. To this end I have been endeavouring to have the two reports referred to by the hon. member-the Levelton report on licensing on the east coast, and the Sinclair report on licensing on the west coast-referred to the standing committee where

they would form a reference so the committee can involve itself directly in this policy review.

Unfortunately, the official opposition has not co-operated with us to that end, in that they have not been able to agree on the order of reference to the committee. I am hoping that they may, perhaps, find it in their hearts during the Christmas season to allow one of our motions under Standing Order 43 to pass so that the committee can get on with its study.

Mr. Charles Haliburton (South West Nova):

Mr. Speaker, pursuant to Standing Order 43, 1 rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. In view of the fact that the Minister of Fisheries and Oceans is in the process of reviewing fisheries policies in general and plans to introduce a white paper in the spring, and given the importance of enabling members of Parliament to participate in this process and provide an input in the formation of fisheries policy, in particular of licensing policies, I would move, seconded by the hon. member for Cardigan (Mr. MacDonald):

That the Standing Committee on Fisheries and Forestry commence forthwith an examination of proposed licensing policies on the east and west coasts, including the Levelton and Sinclair studies, and that the committee be authorized to take such evidence and undertake such travel as may be necessary for that purpose.

Mr. Haliburton:

My question to the minister is simply: Is it a fact that there are in existence freezer-trawler licences off the east coast of Canada? If so, how many are there, and when were they issued?

Mr. Haliburton:

1 recommend it to members. Information was given to me in my riding which indicated that there are in existence, in the province of Nova Scotia, two freezer-trawler licences held by people in that province.
