As this question stands in my name and I happen to be in my seat, perhaps I may have a word. One of the officials approached me with respect to part 5 of the question and explained what the minister has already explained to the house. I can see that the point is not one of public expenditure but rather the question whether the amounts received by the film board) from motion picture companies, as a result of its films being shown, should be made public. I readily understood that perhaps it might not be in the public interest to reveal these figures to the board's competitors who are in the motion picture business. Having been advised that I would receive the information for my personal use, I assumed the same thing would apply to every member, so that the information would not necessarily become public property. Under these conditions I agreed that there should be a reservation with respect to part 5 of the question.
