Mr. C. G. MacNEIL (Vancouver North):

I desire to ask the Minister of Pensions and National Health (Mr. Power) whether it is possible for him to take any action with respect to the relief of ex-service men among the transient unemployed for whom food and shelter cannot any longer be provided in Ottawa, and who cannot establish domicile elsewhere.

Hon. C. G. POWER (Minister of Pensions and National Health):

If the persons on behalf of whom the hon. member is making

representation are pensioners, they are entitled to unemployment assistance. If they are unfit and unemployable, they are entitled to war veteran's allowance. If they are fit and for the moment unemployed, they have the same privileges as any other citizen. I may add that I think my hon. friend knows that just as well as I do.

Charles Avery Dunning (Minister of Finance and Receiver General)

Liberal

Mr. DUNNING:

No formal applications for loans have been received under part II of the National Housing Act, 1938. Representatives of various municipalities and several groups of private persons interested in the formation of limited-dividend housing corporations have been in touch with the Department of Finance and have received information, advice and technical assistance in connection with the organization of local housing authorities and the preparation of detailed plans for low-rental housing projects.

In most provinces action still has to be taken by the provincial government to enable the municipalities of the province concerned to grant partial tax exemption to low rental housing projects and otherwise comply with the terms of the act.
