Hon. Stuart S. Garson (Minister of Justice):
Mr. Speaker, on March 31 last I informed the house that I had received the report of the committee appointed to study combines legislation, which has come to be known as the MacQuarrie committee. I explained at that time that I was delaying the tabling of the report until we could get the French translation of it. I am now tabling the final report, mimeographed in French and in English.
Support Prices for Beef
I may say that in the interests of early tabling the appendices, which consist of present and past legislation, are not included in the French copy, but will be tabled later as soon as they become available. While it is convenient to have them appended to the report for ready reference, they are not necessary to an understanding of it.
It is the intention of the government after the Easter recess to introduce legislation based upon the report.
