Robert Henry Winters (Minister of Public Works)

Hon. Robert H. Winters (Minister of Public Works):

Mr. Speaker, the limited dividend technique was developed by the federal government to assist local initiative to provide low rental accommodation. Under the National Housing Act the Central Mortgage and Housing Corporation is authorized, with the approval of the governor in council, to make loans of up to 90 per cent of the lending value of the project. In these loans there is a contribution in the form of a low interest rate and an unusually long amortization period of up to 40 years. In many instances private citizens, charitable organizations and local levels of government may also make contributions to the project to keep the level of rentals as low as possible.

Loans have been approved in Saskatchewan for 17 projects, comprising 438 self-contained housing units and 348 hostel units. Then, sir, I have here a list of localities in which projects have been built, the number of units and the amount of the loans. With unanimous consent I shall table it to save the time of the house.

BALTIC STATES

DIPLOMATIC RECOGNITION

PC

Mr. Michener

Progressive Conservative

1. Has Canada at any time extended diplomatic recognition to (i) Latvia; (ii) Estonia; (iii) Lithuania?

2. Does Canada today recognize the above three states as sovereign states?

3. Has Canada by any diplomatic or political action acknowledged the de facto incorporation of the above three states into the U.S.S.R.?

4. To what government does Canada look at the present time for diplomatic exchange with respect to the geographical areas formerly known as: (i) Latvia; (ii) Estonia; (iii) Lithuania?

5. Was Mr. Benidickson speaking for the government of Canada in the reply which he gave to similar questions on May 17, 1954, as reported in Hansard, page 4770?

LIB

Lester Bowles Pearson (Secretary of State for External Affairs)

Liberal

Hon. L. B. Pearson (Secretary of Slate for External Affairs):

The answer to the three parts of question one is yes.

In answer to the second question, I would call attention to the fact that a reply to a similar question asked in this house in May, 1954, is valid also for this question. There has been no occasion when the government of Canada considered it necessary to reaffirm or withdraw formally de jure recognition of these states.

The answer to the third question is as follows. In 1947, in the course of an action in the Exchequer Court of Canada, the Secretary of State for External Affairs informed the court that the government of Canada recognized that Estonia had been de facto incorporated into the U.S.S.R. but did not recognize this de jure. No similar action has been taken with respect to Latvia or Lithuania.

As to the fourth question, I would say that if by "diplomatic exchange" the hon. member means the conduct of business concerning these three areas and their inhabitants, Canada would have to look to the government of the Soviet union which has de facto control of these areas at the present time.

The answer to the fifth question is yes.
