Mr. Stanley Knowles (Winnipeg North Centre):

I wonder if I may direct a question to the Prime Minister, which he may wish to

think over before he answers? I do so most earnestly and respectfully. Would the Prime Minister consider going to Winnipeg this week so that he may see with his own eyes the destruction and disaster being suffered by our people?

Right Hon. L. S. St. Laurent (Prime Minister):

I am sorry, but it will not be possible for me to go to Winnipeg this week. I think the announcements that will be made shortly as to what is to be done in connection with the whole situation will satisfy those who wish their sympathy expressed as vigorously as possible to the population that is so distressed in that area.

EFFECT OF DISASTER UPON RURAL AREAS


On the orders of the day:


PC

George Alexander Drew (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. George A. Drew (Leader of the Opposition):

Following the observations that have been made with regard to the situation in Manitoba, and having regard to the statements that were made yesterday, may I suggest to the government that, in considering the things that must be done, full recognition be given to the extent of the disaster to the rural areas? While the tragedy and the destruction in Winnipeg is attracting attention through the necessity of protecting buildings there, there is also a heavy loss in the rural areas, in a considerable part of which crops will not be planted this year. I suggest that the government, in announcing its plans in regard to Winnipeg, also announce what is to be done for the rural areas that are affected.

Inquiries of the Ministry disaster in Winnipeg, and also as to the proposed amendments to that act which were referred to in a dispatch appearing in this morning's Globe and Mailt
