YUKON TERRITORY

PC

George Black

Progressive Conservative

Mr. George Black (Yukon):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to draw attention to the fact that on March 14 a motion for the production of papers was passed, concerning information which it should not have taken more than two days to prepare, because it is all available here in Ottawa. As yet, however, that return has not been brought down.

PC

Thomas Ashmore Kidd

Mr. T. A. Kidd (Kingston City):

Mr. Speaker, I want to direct a question to the Minister of Veterans Affairs in reference to

the veterans who are at present attending university, and the recommendations made by the national council of student veterans. When can the veterans at present attending university expect an announcement in regard to their application for assistance? This has further reference to a question I directed to the minister on March 17, which appears at page 1560 of Hansard.

Milton Fowler Gregg (Minister of Veterans Affairs)

Liberal

Hon. Milton F. Gregg (Minister of Veterans Affairs):

I thank the hon. member for giving me notice of this question, and my statement will answer the question of today as well as the previous one to which he has referred.

Recently the executive of the national council of student veterans came to Ottawa and presented a brief which contained a number of recommendations. I have replied to this brief, and have attempted to cover all the points raised by the council, one of which was a suggestion that the government authorize an increase in the basic rate of the monthly training allowance. I have stated in my reply to the council that it is not the intention of the government to authorize any further increase at this time.
