Mr. A. H. BENCE (Saskatoon City):
Mr. Speaker, I should like to direct a question to the Minister of Finance. In view of the fact that in all probability the Minister of Finance
will not have an opportunity to be before the house for questions in connection with his department, I would draw his attention to question 3, which has been on the order paper since April 3, and which relates to the matter of making loans under the housing act available to individuals in Saskatchewan. I understand that many applications for loans have been made but are being held up pending the arranging of an agreement between the lending institutions and the dominion and Saskatchewan governments with respect to the matter of security. My constituency of Saskatoon is in a desperate position with respect to housing and I wish the minister would give us this information as soon as he possibly can.
