Hon. Douglas Abbott (Minister of Finance):

I have received a number of representations of one sort and another, but the policy announced by the government has not been altered as a result of those representations. I might add that regulations to implement the policy as announced have now been prepared, together with forms to be completed by the municipalities setting out information with respect to federal property in their jurisdictions. I hope those regulations will be adopted and made available in the course of a few days.

Mr. Fraser:

-that the government would return a generous refund on last year's income tax if the returns were sent in now. My question is, what is generous about returning a person's own money?

Mr. McCann:

This step has been taken with a view to getting the returns in quickly in order that the assessments may be made and the refundable portion collected in the months of January, February and March returned as soon as possible. The sooner the returns are in, the sooner the refunds will be made.
