I should

Hon. Robert H. Winters (Minister of Resources and Development):

I wish to thank the hon. member for giving me notice of his question. The minister of public works for Manitoba has recommended, and we have concurred in, a route which runs from the Ontario-Manitoba boundary via existing highway No. 1 to a point near West Hawk lake, thence southwesterly past Falcon lake to a point north of Glen, thence westerly to a point east of Ste. Anne, thence northwesterly to the boundary of St. Boniface.

Mr. Howard C. Green (Vancouver-Quadra):

I wish to direct a question to the Prime Minister. Has he as yet received formal notification from the United Kingdom that the parliament there has passed the amendment to the British North America Act which will enable the new old age pensions legislation to be brought in? If so, can the Prime Minister tell us when he will be making a statement to the house, as promised yesterday?

Liberal

Right Hon. L. S. St. Laurent (Prime Minister):

Mr. Speaker, just before coming

into the house I again communicated with both the Department of External Affairs and Government house in order to ascertain if any official word had yet come from London. I was informed that none had yet come, although this morning there was a dispatch sent to our high commissioner asking him to let us know just as soon as the matter had been finally dealt with. There has not yet been any answer to that message.

MANPOWER

NATIONAL ADVISORY COUNCIL


On the orders of the day:


PC

Gordon Francis Higgins

Progressive Conservative

Mr. G. F. Higgins (St. John's East):

I wish to direct a question to the Minister of

Labour. On May 21, as reported at page 3220 of Hansard, I asked the parliamentary assistant to the Minister of Labour if the national advisory council on manpower intended using the national census for some of its purposes. The parliamentary assistant at that time stated that he would take the question as notice. Is the minister prepared to answer the question today?

Milton Fowler Gregg (Minister of Labour)

Liberal

Hon. Milton F. Gregg (Minister of Labour):

I have noted the hon. member's question, and I think I can answer it immediately. The national advisory council on manpower will not use the data collected under the census administration for any other purposes than those for which similar information has been used in the past. In other words, it will not be used as an alternative method of registration.

May I just say to the minister that in the advertisements of the dominion bureau of statistics, there is given an undertaking that no statistics will be revealed to any department under any circumstances.
