Hon. Brooke Claxton (Minister of National Defence):

Two cases of suspected typhoid fever have been found, and show the clinical symptoms of that disease, but so far the laboratory tests are negative. It is not known yet whether in fact the patients have typhoid, though they show the clinical symptoms of it, andi they are being treated as if they have typhoid.

CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I.-STEEL FOR CONSTRUCTION


On the orders of the day:

Mr. W. Chester S. McLure@Queens

Mr. Speaker, I desire to direct a question to the Minister of Public Works. My question arises out of a Canadian Press dispatch that I received just a short time before I came into the house. It is short, and if you would give me permission to read it-

Mr. Speaker:

That will establish a very bad precedent. The hon. member might put his question.

Mr. McLure:

I will just ask the question. My question is this. From a Canadian Press report of April 17 I quote-

Progressive Conservative

Mr. McLure:

All right. My question is: Will the contractors for a large eighteen-storey building in Vancouver, to cost $5,500,000, use Canadian steel in its construction? If so, would that not be a good opportunity to secure sufficient steel at the same time for the dominion public building at Charlottetown?

Hon. Alphonse Fournier (Minister of Public Works):

Mr. Speaker, I was sure the hon. member had a serious question to put, because he has not put a question to me in the last three weeks. I was getting lonesome. I have not seen the plans for the eighteen-storey building in Vancouver.

Mr. Fournier (Hull):

Then I would have to ask a minister of private works to answer. I have no knowledge of the specifications of such a building, and I am not quite sure of the specifications of the building in Charlottetown, because the plans have not yet been completed.

NATURAL GAS

SUPPLY FOR ATOMIC ENERGY INSTALLATIONS IN UNITED STATES


On the orders of the day:


PC

Carl Olof Nickle

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Carl O. Nickle (Calgary West):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to ask a question of the Minister of Defence Production, prompted by a rumour now circulating in Alberta. Have any representations been made to the Department of Defence Production by the United States government with regard to a supply of natural gas from southwestern Alberta for the atomic energy installations at Hanford, Washington, and Arco, Idaho? If so, what volume of gas is desired, and spread over what period?

Right Hon. C. D. Howe (Minister of Defence Production):

I have had no notice of this question. I remember vaguely receiving such a request probably a month or six weeks ago. I simply replied that no gas was available, that the gas is controlled by the province of Alberta and that until the province releases it for export outside its boundaries, I could not discuss the matter.
