Mr. TUCKER:

With regard to paragraph 3 of this question, it is considered that the public disclosure of details as to prices paid for various lands being purchased by the Veterans Land Act administration would be detrimental to the administration and operation of the act, and not in the best interests of the veterans for whom the land has been purchased. Subject to that, the question is answered.

Mr. TUCKER:

If the hon. member is interested in any particular parcel of land and wishes to ascertain what has been paid for it, there is no objection to giving him the information. But the public disclosure of the amount paid for each parcel of lp,nd of course will operate to the detriment of the administration of the act, because it may cause others to ask far more for their land than otherwise would be the case.

It is not a matter of the detriment to the administration; it is the detriment to the public, is it not?

It is felt that it would work to the detriment of the veterans who have to pay for the land.

Mr. GRAYDON:

I am not sure that is so. It might mean that the veterans would get the land for less.
