Hon. Lionel Chevrier (Minister of Transport):

Mr. Speaker, I am not aware of any negotiations going on at the present time. I have had no representations made to me in connection with the removal of the toll charge on the Jacques Cartier bridge. Even if there had been, I would deal with the matter on my estimates, as I have already stated.

The order of procedure under

Mr. Rinfret:

With reference to section 7 of the Post Office Act, the members of the other place thought it would be preferable if one of the commissioners to be appointed to the board of review was of the legal profession. As it was my intention to appoint a lawyer,
