Mr. Robichaud:

Yes, Mr. Speaker. I have issued instructions to officers in the field that when fishermen apply for their 1968 lobster fishing licences they should be asked whether they are in favour of or against lobster fishing on Sundays. I can assure the hon. member that if it is the wish of the majority of lobster fishermen that no lobster fishing should be carried out on Sundays, the regulations will be amended to that effect.

Mr. Robichaud:

The inspection is not normally done by the Fisheries Research Board. It is done by the fish inspection branch of the Department of Fisheries. However, there have been cases involving dispute concerning the decision taken by the fish inspection branch when samples have been sent direct to the board, for example, to confirm bacteria counts or for other major reasons. I can well understand the concern of the hon. member that there should be very little time elapse between when the samples are taken and when the inspection takes place.

At different points along the coast close to major fish landing points we have fish inspection laboratories where inspections are carried out. We have received very few complaints. In fact I do not know of any since we established the new inspection laboratory on the northeast coast of New Brunswick, from where I had received some complaints in the past. There are four major fish centres in that particular area. Since that new laboratory has

been established we have received no complaints from the industry concerning delays in respect of inspection of samples taken by our officers.

Mr. Robichaud:

It may be that the hon. member would prefer to go into these details when we are considering the bill clause by clause. As you have just said, Mr. Speaker, normally on second reading we do not refer to the individual clauses of a bill. The remarks which the hon. member is making now are really proper on either clause 2 or clause 1 of the bill.

Mr. Robichaud:

I move:

That paragraph (1) of clause 36 be amended by deleting the words "has supervision over and direction of the work and staff of the corporation and the president."
