Hon. R. A. Bell (Carleton):
Mr. Speaker, in the absence of the President of the Treasury Board may I direct my question to his parliamentary secretary. In view of the urgent need of house builders to make their spring plans, is the parliamentary secretary yet in a position to advise the house what the National Housing Act rate will be for the second quarter of 1968? Does he anticipate that it will be 9 per cent or more?
