Mr. Speaker:

I am always put on the spot when a minister asks me if I wish him to answer a question. He has full right to answer whatever he pleases or not to answer at all. Under past practice a question of this type is not put at this time because it is not of an urgent or national character and, in addition, can be asked when the estimates of the Department of Public Works are before the committee of supply.

EDUCATION

TRAINING FACILITIES FOR SCIENTISTS, ENGINEERS, ETC. ASSISTANCE TO UNIVERSITIES


On the orders of the day:


PC

George Harris Hees

Progressive Conservative

Mr. George H. Hees (Broadview):

I should like to direct a question to the Prime Minister. Does the government intend to assist the universities in providing the greatly enlarged training facilities that will be needed to train the greatly increased numbers of scientists, engineers, doctors and dentists, of which this country is so critically short today, so that we may avoid a continuance of that shortage?

Mr. Speaker, the government's intentions so far as they have been crystallized in decisions have already been announced to the house, and that procedure will be followed when other decisions are reached.

Mr. Hees:

Was not the government's decision in this regard announced on Friday by the Prime Minister when he announced there would be no assistance given to the universities except to provide extra training facilities for the arts and humanities?

Mr. Si. Laurent (Quebec East):

If my hon. friend is of the opinion that he was given on Friday the answer to the question put this morning, I cannot see why he repeats it.

Mr. Hees:

In reply to the Prime Minister's answer may I say this. It was my impression that he said that no extra facilities would be provided except for the humanities. I am trying to clear up the question as to the sciences and engineering.
