Hon. A. J. MacEachen (Minister of National Health and Welfare):

1. The Quebec Regional Office is at present employing casual staff to deal with the initial phase of implementation of the Guaranteed Income Supplement Program. Recruitment began in January and the numbers of staff (casuals), employed has increased gradually to the present total of 194. It is anticipated that the initial phase of this program will be completed by the end of April with a consequent reduction in the number of casual employees.

2. At this time, it is impossible to estimate accurately the number and level of employees that will be required for the ongoing aspects of this program hence the total amount that will be paid in salaries each year. This information will be available only after enough applications have been processed to permit an accurate measure to be made of the amount and type of work to be performed.

Hon. E. J. Benson (Minister of National Revenue and President of the Treasury Board):

To fulfil an undertaking of the government to the Newfoundland delegation during the negotiations leading to confederation, sales of margarine in the province of Newfoundland were not subjected to federal sales tax from the date of confederation. During the period April 1, 1949, to March 30, 1966, annual remission orders gave effect to this undertaking; however, effective March 30, 1966, the exemption was established under an act to amend the Excise Tax Act (Bill C198 which received royal assent July 11, 1966).
