Mr. DUNNING:

In the meantime we can settle a couple of points with respect to section 6. In the light of the amendment to which I referred to section 8, paragraph (b) of section 6 might be amended so as to eliminate the proviso, which will not be necessary. I would ask my colleague the Minister of National Defence to make a motion to this effect.

Mr. DUNNING:

We will eliminate the proviso in paragraph (b). Then, could I have consideration of the amendment to paragraph (f) incorporating in it the suggestion of the hon. member for Rosthern, changing the word "required" to "taken," and adding the words "as long as the borrower is not in default." With these changes the paragraph would read:

(f) No security by way of endorsement or otherwise shall be taken as long as the borrower is not in default.

Mr. NEILL:

Would it not be better to define the words struck out than simply to refer to the proviso?

Yes. We could use the expression "all the words after the word 'made'."

Mr. DUNNING:

So long as the chairman strikes out the words, the result will be satisfactory.

Mr. COLD WELL:

There is one point upon which I am not clear. In reply to a question asked by the hon. member for Winnipeg North (Mr. Heaps) the minister indicated that loans on larger properties were not contemplated. Then in reply to a question asked by the hon. member for Davenport (Mr. MacNicol) I understood the minister to say that loans would be made on multiple dwellings to the extent of $5,000 for four families, the idea being $1,000 over the total number of families. Suppose there were six families, would that be all right?

Mr. DUNNING:

Tha't was just an illustration. The distinction we are trying to make is between buildings which constitute homes, and buildings of another kind. As I mentioned the other day, it is difficult to frame regulations as to buildings used partly for home purposes and partly for business purposes. The intent of the law is to make it apply with respect to homes.

Mr. HEAPS:

In order that there may be no misunderstanding, will the minister indicate whether the owner of an apartment building containing twenty or thirty apartments would be entitled to come under the provisions of this bill?
