Mr. D. S. Harkness (Calgary North):
Mr. Speaker, I should like to direct a question to the Minister of Finance. Is the minister aware that yesterday Calgary's largest building company had to lay off a quarter of its labour force because of lack of mortgage funds, and other companies there are in the same position? Is the government now prepared to make any change in its policy in this regard in order to enable house building to go ahead?
