Mr. Speaker, might I ask the hon. member to allow this question to be dropped, on the understanding that I will give him the full information that is asked for? I do not think it is fair to these people to print that information and to display it to the public in general, but I think it is all right for members to have it and to use it freely.
As long as the information that is furnished may be used, I have no objection to dropping the question, Mr. Speaker. It is to be made clear, however, that any information given privately can be used publicly.
Hon. Hugues Lapointe (Minister of Veterans Affairs) moved
that the house go into committee at the next sitting to consider the following resolution:
That it is expedient to present a measure to amend the Pension Act (a) to adjust the allowance for excessive wear and tear of a pensioner's slothing, when he wears a prosthesis, to correspond to the increase in the basic scale of pensions; (b) to make more adequate provision when there are two dependent parents of a deceased member of the forces; and (c) to provide for some administrative changes.
He said: His Excellency the Governor General, having been made acquainted with the subject matter of this resolution, recommends it to the consideration of the house.
