HOUSING

TABLING OF NEW RENTAL SCALE FOR PUBLIC HOUSING

LIB

John Robert (Jack) Nicholson (Minister of Labour)

Liberal

Hon. J. R. Nicholson (Minister of Labour):

Mr. Speaker, with the permission of the house I should like to table a new rental scale for public housing in Canada; and I suggest, if the house is agreeable, that it be appended to Votes and Proceedings.

I am not going to make an extended statement, but I think I should say that a number of provincial governments have expressed concern about the rent to income scale for public housing that has been in force in Canada without material change since 1962. Central Mortgage and Housing Corporation has given careful consideration to the matter, and the rent to income scale that I ask leave to table is the result. It provides for reductions in rent averaging $16 per month per unit.

I might say, Mr. Speaker, that Ontario, the province most directly affected by the new scale, agrees with the new scale and proposes to introduce it; and as I understand it, the responsible minister is tabling it this afternoon in the legislature in Toronto. The new scale is available immediately to all provinces wishing to adopt it in public housing projects.

Lawrence T. Pennell (Solicitor General of Canada)

Liberal

Hon. L. T. Pennell (Solicitor General):

It

is not intended to recommend that amnesty be granted to prisoners in federal institutions on the occasion of the forthcoming visit to Canada of Her Majesty the Queen. Amnesty was granted to prisoners on the occasion of Her Majesty's visit in 1959. However, on that occasion the Minister of Justice stated that, as the operations of the newly established National Parole Board became effective, so that every inmate thereafter would receive detailed consideration, under the process of automatic review, as to his eligibility for release prior to the termination of sentence, it was not anticipated that a general amnesty would be considered on the occasion of visits of Her Majesty to Canada thereafter. It is to be noted that all sentences in federal institutions are now in fact reviewed automatically by the National Parole Board and paroles granted in appropriate cases. Prior to the visit of Her Majesty in Canada in 1964, the Minister of Justice at that time stated in the House of Commons that, in view of the implementation of the Parole Act, it would not be proper that an amnesty be granted on the occasion of that royal visit, and none was granted. For similar reasons, therefore, the government of Canada will not recommend a grant of amnesty in connection with the Queen's forthcoming visit to Canada.
