Mr. MARTIN: (Minister of National Health and Welfare)

Liberal

1. Aside from making recommendations and proposals and furnishing advice, the council

[Mr. Mcllraith.l

has no authority conferred upon it, and there is nothing obligatory upon the Minister of National Health and Welfare or any other authority to accept its advice or recommendations. However, in the years since its inception, the council has been recognized for the important part it has played in fostering and initiating much useful and progressive health legislation, and its advice and recommendations have come to be regarded as worthy of careful consideration by all concerned.

2. The Department of National Health and Welfare employs a full-time secretary to the council, who is responsible, under direction of the chairman, for bringing recommendations of the council to the attention of the appropriate authorities, and to report back to the council any action taken in respect thereto.

3. Yes. The extent to which uniformity has been attained in the provision of public health services by the various provinces is credited largely to the exchange of information and ideas made possible through the getting together of the senior health officials at meetings of the council.
