Mr. Bourgel:

Mr. Chairman, I do not intend to speak until six o'clock, but even if I did intend to do so, may I tell the hon. member that I would not need his permission to do it.

Mr. Chairman, the reason why I rose is because I do not want the opposition to be deemed responsible for having delayed the passing of a measure which could provide jobs for part of the 700,000 unemployed which we now have in this country.

That is the reason for my intervention.

Mr. Asselin:

-the request for co-operation that the Minister of Transport (Mr. Balcer) made to the hon. member for Laurier (Mr. Chevrier).

The minister simply asked the hon. member for Laurier to reconsider his decision and to have the motion providing for third reading of Bill C-69 passed today. He gave his reasons for doing so. He did not accuse the opposition. On the contrary, it is the hon. member for Levis who accused himself, saying it had been claimed that the opposition was delaying the adoption of this legislation.

The hon. minister simply said this: If the motion providing for third reading were adopted today we could benefit from the fact that this project might be started as soon as possible and thus provide work for thousands of persons. That was what the Minister of Transport meant to say.

And now, Mr. Speaker, I would like to challenge an allegation made by the hon.

Business of the House

member for Laurier. He stated in this house that, if the bill was not passed it was because of the attitude of some hon. members on the government side.

Let me tell the hon. member for Laurier that we all co-operated in order to have this bill passed as soon as possible, and that every member in this house, like the hon. member for Laurier himself, has done everything they could to that end.

(Text):

Motion agreed to and bill read the third time and passed.

Mr. Nowlan:

Mr. Speaker, as I think I intimated last night, tomorrow we will proceed with the estimates of the Department of Citizenship and Immigration, including all branches of that department such as the film board, the archives, the national library, everything for which the minister is responsible in addition to her regular departmental duties. Following the conclusion of the passing of those estimates we will take up the estimates of the Department of Agriculture and proceed with agriculture again on Friday, and when we have concluded those I will announce on Friday what we shall follow with.

Questions ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS 1. Yes. The following answers, deposited with the Clerk of the house, are printed in the official report of debates pursuant to standing order 39:


BRITISH COLUMBIA-INDIAN DENTAL SERVICES

LIB

Mr. Howard

Liberal

I Since July 1, 1960, has any Indian child other than one attending the Hazelton amalgamated school in British Columbia had any teeth extracted by a dentist or dentists within the government service?

2. If so, what is for each such child, the name, the village from which each came, the date and number of extractions, and the name of the dentist?

Answer by: Hon. J. W. Monteith (Minister of National Health and Welfare):

2. See list attached.

The names of the patients are not shown as this would involve giving information which is normally considered as confidential between the practitioner and his patient.

As many of the children for whom dental services were carried out are in residential schools, the department is unable to indicate in each instance the village from which each child came. However, clinic locations are shown on the attached list.

While this inquiry relates to dental extractions only, it should be noted that more than 1,350 single tooth restorations as well as a considerable number of prosthodontic appliances were provided to Indian children in British Columbia during this same period.
