LIB

Clarence Decatur Howe (Minister of Defence Production; Minister of Trade and Commerce)

Liberal

Right Hon. C. D. Howe (Minister of Trade and Commerce):

Mr. Speaker, I wish to table two copies in French and in English of a letter addressed on March 19, 1956, by the Prime Minister (Mr. St. Laurent) to the premiers of all the provinces with regard to fiscal matters. Hon. members will probably wish to have these letters printed as an appendix to Hansard, as was done with the previous correspondence on this subject.

Frederick Greystock Robertson (Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of National Health and Welfare)

Liberal

Mr. Robertson:

Yes; assistance is being

given under the national health program to studies being carried on in Winnipeg on the causes of cerebral palsy and its relationship

to premature birth. Special attention is being given to a study of the effect of jaundice on the brain of newborn infants. The information obtained as a result of this research is expected to be extremely useful to doctors in their efforts to develop ways of preventing this serious affliction. In Ontario, other studies are being assisted under the health grants program on the relationship of heredity to cerebral palsy and on the assessment and evaluation of methods of treatment.
