May I direct a question to the Minister of Veterans Affairs? Will he give an answer to the question which was asked by the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre (Mr. Knowles) as to why the government has not seen fit to bring in something for war veterans allowance recipients as well as the pensioners.

PRAIRIE FARM ASSISTANCE

John Horne Blackmore

Social Credit

Mr. J. H. Blackmore (Lethbridge):

I desire to direct a question to the government through the Minister of Agriculture. I was not able to give adequate notice beforehand, and therefore I would ask that this question be answered on Monday, if possible. Will the department consider the advisability of making provision, through the Prairie Farm Assistance Act, to grant assistance to farmers in Alberta and Saskatchewan at present in distress through the very abnormally wet season of 1951?

PENSION ACT

REQUEST FOR ALLOWANCES IN RESPECT OF ADOPTED CHILDREN


On the orders of the day: Mr. E. D, Fulton (Kamloops): Mr. Speaker, may I ask a question of the Minister of Veterans Affairs relative to the statement he has just made. My question is whether the proposed change in legislation connected with the Pension Act will allow pensioners, who are not able to have children of their own, but who have adopted children, to receive additional payments.
