Mr. BRUCE:

What action is the government taking with respect to giving priority to bringing servicemen's wives home, over the single men who have not been long overseas or who have not seen actual service?

Hugues Lapointe (Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of National Defence)

Liberal

Mr. LAPOINTE:

None. All available

troop transports are being utilized for troop repatriation and will not be allocated to dependents until the troops are repatriated. Any departure from this arrangement would necessitate a radical change of present policy for repatriation of service personnel. It would give rise to much justified criticism on the part of the troops still remaining to be repatriated as it would mean delaying their return to Canada and to civilian life.

Every effort is being made to bring back servicemen's wives and dependents as quickly as possible without interfering with or delaying the repatriation of overseas troops,' whether single or otherwise.

James Garfield Gardiner (Minister of Agriculture)

Liberal

Mr. GARDINER:

There is no part of

this question to which I take any exception except the last phrase, "and to whom was it paid?" This question has been put in previous sessions of the house and it has been pointed out that there are 82,000 farmers to whom prairie farm assistance payments have been made in .one year. If answers to questions of this kind be insisted upon, it will be seen what that will amount to. But there is another and more important reason. It is . provided, either in the legislation or the regulations-I am speaking from memory at the moment

that this money must be paid to the individual farmer. That provision is made for the purpose of preventing collectors from realizing on this money which is paid out for the purpose of retaining a farmeT on1 his land until the next crop is harvested. Questions have been asked in the past, and questions have been sent in to us in an effort to obtain the names of these people. We have refused to give these names to implement companies and others that may be collecting in the community. There is the suggestion that if names can be obtained in this way, it would be easier to make collections and we have always refused to give the names. If it meets with the approval of the hon. member who asks the question, I would suggest that it be not answered at the moment. We could give without any great injury the few names that would be involved1 in Manitoba up to the present time, but if we continued with that practice I am afraid it would work to the detriment of those concerned.
