Would Your Honour allow me to state the number of people who signed the petition? It is in excess of 100,000.

Mr. Carter:

I might add that the petition is signed by the Premier of the province, the Hon. Frank D. Moores, by the leader of the official opposition in the Newfoundland legislature, Mr. Ed. Roberts, the leader of the recently formed Liberal Reform Party, the Hon. J. R. Smallwood, and by the president of the Newfoundland Fishermen's and Allied Workers' Union, Mr. Richard Cashin, a former member of this House. I might also say that to get those four gentlemen to agree with each other long enough to put their names on a single piece of paper is in itself quite a feat, and parliament should recognize that fact by their congratulations.

Mr. Walter C. Carter (St. John's West):

Mr. Speaker, my question is addressed to the Secretary of State for External Affairs. Has the minister received a telegram from the minister of fisheries of Newfoundland expressing doubt that the inshore fishery of eastern Canada can survive one more year without the federal government's full support and, if so, has the minister replied to the telegram, and what was the nature of the reply?
