Mr. J. R. Garland (Nipissing):

Mr. Speaker,

I am sure the house will welcome the announcement that has just been made by the minister, especially to the extent that it will contribute toward the establishment soon in this country of an active secondary market for mortgages. In that sense it is particularly welcome. Having regard to the offering of the 6 per cent mortgages, I think this will be welcomed and will point up the need for government action for which we have been pressing for some time-that is, the lowering of the N.H.A. interest rate-which will have the effect of bringing the chartered banks and others in this country back into the house mortgage lending business.
