Mr. Leon Balcer (Three Rivers):

I should like to direct a question to the Minister of National Revenue. Is it a fact that orders have been issued to the staff of his department to file an affidavit, in addition to producing official receipts for charitable donations, when submitting their income tax returns, which procedure is illegal?

Hon. J. J. McCann (Minister of National Revenue):

The answer is that instructions to members of the staff are matters of internal operation and are confidential. It is not considered to be illegal to give instructions to members of the staff with reference to their own personal income tax returns.
