Hon. C. M. Drury (Minister of Industry):

1. The assumption is taken that the questions relate to the three National Employment Service Office areas of Brantford, Pembroke and St. Jean which were de-designated effective January 23, 1965. No requests for certificates of exemption from Income Tax have been received from new businesses in the three areas presumably because no businesses have yet completed the first tax year in which the exemption will be sought. New businesses, however, have declared their intentions to establish in the following numbers: Brantford 67; Pembroke 1; Saint Jean 26.

Of these, letters of assurance, indicating that plans of the new businesses if carried out will meet the requirements of the Income Tax Act, have been issued to firms in the three areas as follows: Brantford 41; Pembroke -; Saint Jean 13.

2 & 3. It is not in the public interest to divulge the names of businesses which may benefit from provisions of the Income Tax Act. However, among the businesses which have received letters of assurance, the following have announced publicly their intentions to establish:

Hon. C. M. Drury (Minister of Industry):

1. A total of 2,573 motor vehicles of all types were purchased by the Federal Government during the fiscal year ending March 31, 1965; 1,987 of these were passenger carrying vehicles.

2. Negotiations are under way with the vehicle manufacturers to extend to all civilian departments vehicle repair arrangements similar to those established some years ago for the Department of National Defence. The existing arrangements allow the Department of National Defence to have repairs carried out by the manufacturers' dealers throughout the country at specified parts prices and labour rates with the dealer being reimbursed

by the manufacturer. The manufacturer, in turn, bills the Department of National Defence on a monthly basis for the services performed by the dealer.

3. The Government expects to be able to continue to sell its used cars to recognized used car dealers at competitive prices, bearing in mind both its responsibility to achieve as high a return as possible for the sale of an asset of the Crown and, at the same time, keeping in mind the necessity of making use of normal commercial channels.

4. No federal employee would be able to buy a vehicle through the proposed system which will exclusively be used for the procurement of government vehicles.
