Mr. Hugh Proudfool (Poniiac-Timiskaming):
I should like to direct a question to the Minister of Mines and Technical Surveys, but in his absence I will direct it to his parliamentary assistant. In view of the threatened closure of the New Calumet mine because of the depressed prices for base metals, will the government give the mine a monthly subsidy as it did for Britannia mines in order to maintain employment?
