Mr. A. C. Cadieu (Meadow Lake):
Mr. Speaker, I should like to address my question to the Minister of Transport. When the transport commission holds its hearings in western Canada, particularly in Saskatchewan, will members of parliament, members of the provincial governments, representatives of the municipalities and others interested in rail line abandonment be notified of the dates and places of the hearings?
Hon- J. W. Pickersgill (Minister of Transport): Mr. Speaker, according to the notice I received, the Board of Transport Commissioners has arranged a conference to be held in Winnipeg on August 8. I suggest that anyone who wishes to participate in or attend this conference should get in touch with the secretary of the board to ascertain its procedures. I am afraid I do not know now what they are, but I am sure the secretary would reply very promptly to any inquiry.
