Hon. J. L. ILSLEY (Minister of Finance):
Mr. Speaker, yesterday the hon. member sent me notice of the question he has just asked. It is an important one, and raises a question with respect to additional moneys which will have to be appropriated to carry on operations under the Dominion Housing Act. That matter
v Labour Conditions
is not yet definitely settled, but I believe I shall be able to make a statement in regard to it within about a week.
The remainder of the hon. member's question relates to the department headed by my colleague the Minister of Munitions and Supply (Mr. Howe), under whose jurisdiction Wartime Housing Limited operates. I do not believe he has had notice of the question. It may be that he would like to look at it and, if he so desires, he could make a statement later.
