Mr. Martin:

I should like to direct a question to the Minister of Citizenship and Immigration arising out of his announcement offering to pay to the children of immigrants up to 16 years of age the equivalent of $5 per month. My question is this. Does the minister regard that offer as a substitute for the regular payment of family allowances?
