Mr. W. G. Weir (Portage-Neepawa):
Mr. Speaker, I request the privilege of announcing that the money received on behalf of the Manitoba flood relief fund from parliament hill, which includes contributions from members of the Senate, members of the House of Commons, members of the press gallery, and staffs of both houses, as well as some outside contributions and the collection taken at the ball game, now totals $6,706.35.
Members of the committee named to accept these contributions are most grateful for this splendid response, and desire to take this opportunity to thank those who have so generously contributed to this very needy cause-particularly so when it is known that many had already made contributions through other sources.
