Hon. Waller L. Gordon (Minister of Finance):
Mr. Speaker, in accordance with the requirements of the Financial Administration Act I have tabled today volumes I, II, and III, in English and in French, of the Public Accounts of Canada for the fiscal year ended March 31, 1963.
I have also tabled for the first time an abridged edition of the Public Accounts of Canada in English and in French. It is my belief that a wider distribution of some of the data contained in the public accounts will prove of value to those who desire information in summary form of the more significant aspects of the government's financial transactions for the fiscal year. I hope this abridged report will commend itself to hon. members and to the public, and that the practice introduced today will be followed in subsequent years.
I have also tabled the report, in English and in French, of the Auditor General of Canada for the fiscal year ended March 31, 1963.
