Mr. Castleden:

I notice in the report that the number of high school children in eastern Canada, that is, all parts east of Ontario including the Atlantic provinces, contains a very small proportion of Indian school children attending grade 9 and above. I think that, according to the annual report of the minister's department, the figure is about 17 children. This is an extremely small number of Indian children who ever have an opportunity for a high school education and in all of the other provinces there are school children attending the schools right up to grade 12. I am not saying that this number is large either, but I think from Ontario east the figure is only about 17; whereas in the rest of Canada there is something over 300 or 400. Is this due to lack of facilities or lack of arrangements, and what is being done about it?

Mr. Castleden:

I take it from the minister's answer that there are facilities available and arrangements with the provinces have been made so that they may enter the high schools as soon as they are qualified to attend?

I should like to ask the minister a question. Will the inquiry include an investigation into the allocation of shipping permits by the wheat board as among the various grain companies?
