Mr. Church:

I forgot to include one question in my remarks. In view of the revenues of the department, is there any hope of going back to the one-cent rate for drop letters for city delivery and the two-cent rate anywhere in the dominion?

Mr. T. L. Church (Broadview):

Mr. Speaker,

I have a question which I might have raised as a question of privilege. I am addressing it to the Secretary of State for External Affairs. In view of the statement made in this morning's issue of the Globe and Mail and in other newspapers I would ask him these questions:

First, has the government any further information on the development of power in the Niagara river? Officials say that nothing has happened there since 1920 or 1922.

Second, what hopes are there for the ratification of any treaty separately? The treaty with respect to additional power at Niagara was before the house in 1922 and 1923. Has the attention of chief officials of the government been called to a statement by chief officials of the Hydro Electric Power Commission of Ontario, who have been asking ratification of this for twenty months? A spokesman for the Hydro Electric Power Commission of Ontario has said that the report made in the house yesterday is erroneous; one of them went so far as to say-and used a word which I do not think should have been used-that it was "silly".

Is there any change in the international section of the St. Lawrence river regarding the use of power, either separately or in conjunction with the seaway plan? Will any further information be forthcoming before the session ends on these important matters? -because, as I said yesterday, no doubt blackouts are due in Ontario and in other places owing to the scarcity of power. Nothing has been done in the matter whatsoever. The Secretary of State for External Affairs should make a statement about it.

Mr. T. L. Church (Broadview):

Mr. Speaker, how did Canada vote last Tuesday in the United Nations committee regarding a plan to give Jerusalem an international form of government? Has the government any announcement to make on the subject? In the event of Canada's supporting it, how will effect be given to it? What army will be assigned by Canada to it, either by voluntary recruiting or otherwise? Has this last-mentioned matter been considered by the government?
