Mr. C. E. Bennett (Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Veterans Affairs):
Mr. Speaker, yesterday the hon. member for Kootenay West (Mr. Herridge) inquired as to when copies of the Veterans Land Act as amended will be available. I am informed that it is hoped that these copies will be ready for distribution within two or three weeks after Bill No. 459 receives the royal assent. In the meantime V.L.A. representatives in the field have been notified and instructed as to the new amendments, and I can assure the hon. member that there will be no delay whatsoever in implementing this new and important legislation.
The house in committee of supply, Mr. Robinson (Simcoe East) in the chair.
