Mr. Speaker, I have a question I should like to direct to the Minister of National Health and Welfare and-or the Minister of Consumer and Corporate Affairs. It has to do with today's report that consumers are facing a drug price increase in April, in line with new price lists from manufacturers. Will the ministers look into the situation, which underlines the need for new drug price legislation?
