Hon. A. J. MacEachen (Minister of Labour):

1. Data are not available by two week periods nor is information available for number of persons registered. The number of applications for employment at N.E.S. offices during calendar months of 1964 including workers who may have made more than one application is as follows: January, 398,043; February, 293,408; March, 290,283; April, 325,655; May, 296,023; June, 344,310; July, 349,349; August, 296,775; September, 316,718.

2. Data are not comparable. N.E.S. data represent number of applications for employment during calendar months while labour force data represent estimates of persons unemployed and seeking work during a particular week of each month. Also N.E.S. data do not represent unemployed persons by labour force definition.

Labour force estimates of persons unemployed and seeking work during survey weeks indicated in 1964 are as follows:

January 18, 466,000; February 22, 467,000; March 21, 456,000; April 18, 403,000; May 23, 293,000; June 20, 282,000; July 18, 265,000; August 22, 247,000; September 19, 218,000.

3. Data are not available for two week periods nor is information available for number of persons placed. The number of placements in employment during calendar months in 1964 including workers who may have been placed more than once is as follows:

January, 73,471; February, 66,673; March, 74,756; April, 104,380; May, 109,669; June, 109,134; July, 123,827; August, 111,407; September, 133,281.

Hon. Judy V. LaMarsh (Minister of National Health and Welfare):

The federal government has not been officially informed on the details of the Ontario proposals for the expansion of medical, dental and nursing training facilities. However, officers of the Department of National Health and Welfare have been working closely with Ontario officials in a careful study of health needs. This is part of a continuing program of appraisal.

As far as the federal government is concerned, it is hoped to be able to establish a nation-wide picture of needs in this area, and this forms part of the analysis of the royal commission report on health services. This analysis is nearing completion and, as mentioned earlier in the House of Commons, it should be possible to make proposals to the provinces early next year.

Hon. J. R. Nicholson (Postmaster General):

1. Observation galleries were installed in post offices many years ago. Since their installation, employees have been charged with theft but there is no record of the number of charges and the cities involved.

2. The Post Office Department cannot recall any cases where as a result of observation from galleries postal employees have been charged and penalized for such infractions as smoking in the prohibited areas of post offices. Normal supervisory steps are taken where regulations of this type are violated.

Hon. Harry W. Hays (Minister of Agriculture):

It is not the intention of the Department of Agriculture to close out the operations of the experimental farm at Nappan, N.S.

The operations of the Nappan experimental farm will not be curtailed with respect to

work of practical importance to the area which it serves directly. As a general policy it proposed to concentrate basic research at fewer stations. Over a period of time this will involve the transfer of certain basic research studies from Nappan in the interests of providing a better and more efficient research service to the entire Atlantic region.
