PC

Edmund Davie Fulton (Minister of Citizenship and Immigration; Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Fulton:

Mr. Speaker, I am glad to advise the house that I have just been handed a copy of a telegram received in my office, which advises me that the provincial government of British Columbia confirm that they are prepared to share in the cost of keeping the Britannia mine open on a temporary basis to the extent of 20 per cent up to a maximum of $30,000. On the basis of the figures so far available to me I am satisfied that the maximum would not be reached and that therefore we can expect a 20 per cent contribution from the province of British Columbia.

On the orders of the day:

Topic:   LABOUR CONDITIONS
Subtopic:   BRITISH COLUMBIA-ANNOUNCEMENT OF CONTINUED OPERATION OF HOWE SOUND COMPANY
