wish to direct a question to the Acting Prime Minister. It arises out of a speech delivered a day or so ago by the Secretary of State for External Affairs (Mr. Pearson).

Hon. Brooke Claxion (Acting Prime Minister):

I did not have notice of the question, Mr. Speaker, and I did not have a chance therefore to communicate with the Secretary of State for External Affairs to find out what the facts are. He is in Washington, and will be back here tomorrow night. I think he had better answer the question on Thursday.

Hon. Milton F. Gregg (Minister of Labour):

The answer is yes. An agreement between the government of Canada and the government of the province of Saskatchewan, providing for the co-ordination of rehabilitation activities in that province, and federal financial assistance in relation to it and relating to the appointment of a provincial co-ordinator, was signed on August 21, 1953. I am now advised that a provincial co-ordinator on rehabilitation, in the person of Mr. J. S. Probe, was appointed in February by the province of Saskatchewan.
