Mr. STEPHENSON:

I would like to ask the responsible minister, or in his absence the Secretary of State if he has any comment to make on the question I raised previously, with regard to the inaccuracy of a return brought down in answer to a question of mine.

Right Hon. C. D. HOWE (Minister of Reconstruction)1: The hon. member for Durham is well aware that the minister responsible for the veterans housing is not in his seat, nor is his parliamentary assistant. I shall be very glad to call the attention of my colleague to the remarks that have been made to-day, and I am sure that he will make a statement at some later date.

Hon. IAN MACKENZIE (Minister of Veterans Affairs):

Mr. Speaker, I wish to speak to a question of privilege. I was detained on other duties at three o'clock when the hon. member for Durham (Mr. Stephenson) raised a question regarding certain replies to questions he had asked in the house. I made an immediate investigation of the situation, because my right hon. friend who sits to my left (Mr. Howe) said he would refer the matter to me.

I find that there was certain justification for the hon. member's complaint. Officials of the department in making reply confused the Bowmanville project with the Port Hope project, and the reply to question 6 in regard to the Port Hope project was incorrect. I

apologize at once to the hon. member and the house for the misinformation inadvertently conveyed by the officials of the department.
