James MacKerras Macdonnell

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Macdonnell (Greenwood):

With respect to these four questions, all of which stand,

I should like to ask the Department of National Defence to hurry along the answers as much as possible. If I remember correctly, the minister told us the other night there was certain information they could get within a minute and a half. I tried to phrase these questions so that it would only mean the obtaining of information readily available.

Mr. Claxton:

I have heard the observations of the hon. gentleman. I can assure him that none of these questions can be answered in a minute and a half. I should think the least it would take for any of them would be a good many days, if not weeks; but we will bring them on.

Liberal

Mr. Garson:

If I may answer this question orally, the constitution of provincial courts comes exclusively within provincial jurisdiction; therefore I think this is a question which more properly should be asked in the Newfoundland legislature.

Mr. Garson:

I think this question might

also be answered orally. No legislation has been passed by the Newfoundland legislature which would authorize the appointment of a fourth supreme court judge.

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

There have

been negotiations recently between the government of Ontario and us with respect to housing developments in Ontario under section 35 of the housing act. The most recent discussions were held on Tuesday, June 5, between the minister of planning and development, Mr. Griesinger, and his officials, on the one hand, and myself and the officers of Central Mortgage and Housing Corporation on the other. In reply to the second question, I can only say that so far no specific proposals have been submitted by the government of Ontario, and I am therefore not able to give the hon. member information with respect to numbers of houses involved.
