Right Hon. L. S. St. Laurent (Prime Minister):
Mr. Speaker, I wish to lay on the table of the house copies of a letter in French and in English which I addressed to the premiers of all the provinces on January 6 last concerning fiscal arrangements.
At the same time I should like to table copies of a letter which I addressed to the premiers of the provinces on December 5 and 6 last, with copies of a draft federal-provincial agreement on unemployment assistance.
I also wish to table two copies in French and in English of the revised proceedings of the federal-provincial meetings of April 26 and October 3 last.
Perhaps hon. members would wish for the sake of convenience to have these letters printed as an appendix to today's Hansard, together, I suppose, with the enclosed draft of the federal-provincial agreement on unemployment assistance. If that should be the desire of the house, perhaps Your Honour might so instruct the officials.
