FLOOD CONDITIONS


On the orders of the day:


LIB

William Lyon Mackenzie King (Prime Minister; President of the Privy Council)

Liberal

Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Prime Minister):

I should like to give the house the latest information as to the arrangements made between the government of British Columbia and our own government with respect to flood conditions in the Fraser valley.

Since his arrival in Ottawa, Hon. Byron I. Johnson, Premier of British Columbia, has been conferring with the Minister of Finance and other members of the government, as well as myself, regarding arrangements for co-operation between the two governments in meeting the appalling situation in the Fraser valley, which the government has recognized as a national disaster demanding action beyond the resources of the provincial government.

After consideration by the cabinet yesterday, the government agreed to accept financial

liability for measures of relief and rehabilitation arising from the flooding of the Fraser valley, on the following basis:

1. The costs of temporary emergency relief to be divided equally between the two governments.

2. The costs of emergency measures already taken or being taken for protecting and strengthening the dikes and for their eventual reconstruction, and for the restoration of the protected lands by the pumping out of flood waters, to be met 75 per cent by the federal government and the remaining 25 per cent by the provincial government.

3. The costs of rehabilitating the areas affected by the floods to be settled by subsequent agreement between the two governments after receiving a report on the extent of damage from the Fraser Valley relief and rehabilitation commission.

In calculating the federal share of the cost of emergency relief and of protecting and restoring the dikes, it was understood that costs incurred by the federal authorities through the provision of services and supplies and as a result of the employment of the armed services would be taken into account.

Both governments have already directed their representatives, General Hoffmeister and Mr. Hamber, not to permit the working out of detailed arrangements to delay action urgently required to provide adequate emergency relief, or to maintain, to repair or to restore the dikes.

Is the statement the Prime Minister has just read confined exclusively to the Fraser river valley, or will the same terms be extended to cover all areas throughout the province which are suffering damage from floods?
