Mr. Fraser:

Do not yell "nails" at me, because we have not received them yet. All we get from this government is taxes. My question is this. Has the minister received a report from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police with regard to the irregularities in the Central Mortgage and Housing Corporation project at St. Catharines? He wrote a letter to one person.

Mr. Speaker:

Order. I would ask hon. members not to interrupt an hon. member who is trying to put a question. But I would ask the hon. member not to forget the rule that questions should be brief, and should be urgent.

I should like to ask the minister if he has received this report from the mounted police; and if so, has he answered the gentleman in St. Catharines to whom he wrote about this matter?

As I recall the matter of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police report on this particular incident, it was dealt with by the house on a previous occasion.

PROJECT FOR PERSONNEL OF CANADIAN SCHOOL OF ARTILLERY AT PICTON


On the orders of the day:


PC

George James Tustin

Progressive Conservative

Mr. G. J. Tusiin (Prince Edward-Lennox):

I should like to direct a question to the Minister of National Defence. The minister

Ls not in his seat at the moment, but I believe his parliamentary assistant could either give me or get for me the information I desire. I have discussed this matter previously with the minister; therefore I did not send written notice to him this morning. Has the government decided on a housing project for the personnel of the Canadian school of artillery at Picton? If so, how many housing units will be provided? Have tenders been called Dr contracts given for any of this work?

Hon. Brooke Claxton (Minister of National Defence):

Mr. Speaker, there is a housing project planned for Picton. It will be carried out by the Central Mortgage and Housing Corporation for the Department of National Defence in accordance with the arrangements already announced, under which housing for married personnel in the armed forces in urban and settled areas will be constructed by the Central Mortgage and Housing Corporation. The number of units planned for Picton for 1949-50 is two hundred; but whether or not they can be completed will depend upon the speed with which contracts are let and the work begun, and the availability of labour and materials. But that is the target-two hundred for this year.
