REQUEST FOR INCREASED PER CAPITA GRANTS TO UNIVERSITIES


On the orders of the day:


PC

Philip Bernard Rynard

Progressive Conservative

Mr. P. B. Rynard (Simcoe East):

I should like to ask a question of the Minister of Finance. In view of the serious shortage of doctors as evidenced by the Hall Commission

report, and the fact that funds were sufficient for only 60 per cent of research projects at the University of Toronto, will the Minister of Finance urgently consider doubling the per capita grant so that researchers will be kept in Canada and our medical schools built up?

Hon. Waller L. Gordon (Minister of Finance):

The hon. Member was kind enough to send me notice of this question. It seems to be inviting the Government to make a statement on a very important matter of policy which I can assure him is receiving close attention. I think it would be inappropriate for me to comment upon it on orders of the day.

I ask a supplementary question. I wonder if the Minister could tell the House whether he expects to make an early announcement authorizing an increase in the per capita university grant from $2 to $3?

Mr. Gordon:

On a point of order, Mr. Speaker, if this question is not in order, then it would not seem to me appropriate to discuss it at ten o'clock.

Mr. Speaker:

Order. The Minister said that in his opinion it was a matter of policy. I shall look into it and restudy the question when I get the blues.

DOMINION-PROVINCIAL RELATIONS REPORTED STATEMENTS BY PREMIERS OF SASKATCHEWAN AND BRITISH COLUMBIA


On the orders of the day:


PC

Reynold Rapp

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Reynold Rapp (Humboldl-Melfori-Tis-dale):

Mr. Speaker, I have a question for the right hon. Prime Minister. In a statement attributed to the Premier of Saskatchewan, Mr. Thatcher, as well as to the Premier of British Columbia, it was indicated that they could not get along with the Federal Government and that they might sever the Federal relationship. As a resident of Saskatchewan I am disturbed about the situation. Will the Prime Minister inform me of the difficulties he has encountered?

Inquiries of the Ministry give me some diplomatic advice in that regard. I expect to be in Regina next Monday and I hope to have an opportunity for an exchange of views with the gentleman in question.

Mr. Frank Howard (Skeena):

Mr. Speaker,

I wonder could I direct a question to the Minister of Transport and ask whether he would have anything to relate to the House about the collision between the U.S. ship Cedarville and the Norwegian ship Topoals-fjiord which occurred just a few days ago, and the deaths which resulted therefrom?
