Léon Balcer (Minister of Transport)

Progressive Conservative

Hon. Leon Balcer (Minister of Transport):

Yes, Mr. Speaker. In the light of the additional information the hon. member was good enough to give me regarding this question about a project for Shippigan island, I was able to make wider inquiries in the department.

I am now able to advise that we are planning to instal a Decca station on this island. The survey of the site has now been completed, and we are working on plans and specifications for the station, which will form part of what will be known as the Anticosti Decca chain. Funds have been included in the 1961-1962 estimates, and the target date for operation is the late fall of this year.

Mr. Yvon Dupuis (St. Jean-Iberville-Na-pierville):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to put a question to the Secretary of State with regard to the statements he made in this house on November 18 and February 15 last.

Would he be in a position to table in this house the full text of the speech on immigration he made in the Labelle constituency and which he claims to have in his possession?

Hon. Noel Dorion (Secretary of State):

Mr. Speaker, I see that my friend does not rely on the statements made by his own colleagues outside the house, and in that he is quite right.

The statements I made are actually correct and I object to the behaviour of certain members who sought to challenge my words. I have been practising law for thirty-three years and-

Daniel Roland Michener (Speaker of the House of Commons)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Speaker:

The minister was asked a question about tabling a document. I am not sure that the document in question is one which relates to the hon. gentleman's administrative responsibility. If it is, he would be at liberty to answer the question. I trust that it does not involve more than an answer to the question.
