TRANSPORTATION OVERSEAS FOR PERSONNEL RESIDENT IN ENGLAND


On the orders of the day:


PC

Percy Chapman Black

Progressive Conservative

Mr. P. C. BLACK (Cumberland):

I should like to ask a question either of the Minister of Transport or the Minister of National Defence. What is the government's policy with respect to the transportation of men who fought in the Canadian services, but who have homes in England and. desire to return to them? I have a letter from The Veterans of Foreign Wars in Halifax, stating that twelve of their men-and the names and numbers are set out-were booked for passage but were unable to, secure authority te sail * on the Queen Elizabeth, which left Halifax a few days ago with 6,000 vacant berths. I should like to know the policy of the government in this connection.

WARTIME HOUSING

USE OF MALTON BUILDINGS AS EMERGENCY SHELTER


On the orders of the day.


PC

Gordon Graydon

Progressive Conservative

Mr. GORDON GRAYDON (Peel):

I

[DOT]should like to direct a question to the Minister [DOT]of Munitions and Supply which arises out of negotiations which have been under way for some time between the city of Toronto and the dominion government for the use for emergency housing purposes by the city of the two dormitories at Malton, Ontario, in my constituency. Has an agreement been concluded in the matter, and, if so, will the minister table it or, at least make it available? In my county there are numerous problems which may arise by virtue of the conclusion of such an agreement.

Hon. C. D. HOWE (Minister of Munitions and Supply):

There have been no negotiations between Wartime Housing and the city of Toronto leading to the taking over of the buildings at Malton by the city of Toronto. Representations have been made to the government about the need of additional shelter in that area. The emergency shelter administrator has approached Wartime Housing and expressed the desire to make use of the buildings at Malton for emergency shelter. The buildings have been placed at his disposal, and I think arrangements are now being concluded by which Wartime Housing Limited will operate the building under the direction of the emergency shelter administrator. That is the position today. Of course, it being two departments of government, no agreement will be required.

On the orders of the day.


PC

Gordon Knapman Fraser

Progressive Conservative

Mr. G. K. FRASER (Peterborough West):

I should like to ask the Minister of Veterans Affairs a question. Could he inform the house where his department has placed counsellors across Canada to give advice to ex-servicemen as to careers? This matter is urgent as many of these men are asking for this information.

Hon. IAN A. MACKENZIE (Minister of Veterans Affairs) : I shall be glad to give my hon. friend a full and detailed answer on Monday next. I could make a general reply now, but I think it would be more satisfactory to give him the details on Monday.
