The minister was replying to a barrage of questions asked ia Ihe House by opposition mem- bers alarmed over the reported shortages of fuel oil in the United States and the in- dications that the U.S. may call on Canada to help overcome such shortages with fuel oil shipments. Opposition Leader Robert Star-field asked if there would be an agreement reached soon bsrween the U.S. and Canada respecting the security o: oil supplies for the eastern part of Canada NO AGREEMENT Mr. Macdonald said dis- cussions between the gc-v- emmer.'.s were taking place, arL-ing out of a 1970 ministeri-l meeting.

Mr. Macbnald said it was likely the eastern provinces -will be suppiic-c with oil from ''an- other place." Re said it would depend very much on the na- ture of the L-temstio-sl inter- rupt ion. "The most probable thing is. for example, if there is a JL'ddJe East interruption there wiTj be increased expects C-n-da from Venerjek or Af- rica."
