POSSIBLE WITHDRAWAL OF INSURANCE COMPANIES FROM HOME MORTGAGE FIELD


On the orders of the day:


NDP

David Lewis (Parliamentary Leader of the N.D.P.)

New Democratic Party

Mr. David Lewis (York South):

Mr. Speaker, I have a question that I wished to direct to the Minister of Finance, but in his understandable absence I should like to ask it of the right hon. Prime Minister. The question arises from a statement by a spokesman for the life insurance companies that they were considering getting out of the mortgage field for single dwellings, for homes, and leaving that to the banks. I ask the right hon. gentleman whether the government have taken note of this statement, the implementation of which would result in a further lessening of funds available for housing, and what they contemplate doing about it.

On the orders of the day:


PC

Richard Albert Bell

Progressive Conservative

Hon. R. A. Bell (Carleton):

Mr. Speaker, may I ask the parliamentary secretary to the President of the Treasury Board whether he is in a position to answer my question of yesterday regarding N.H.A. interest rates.

DEBATES 8063

Inquiries of the Ministry Mr. J. E. Walker (Parliamentary Secretary to President of the Treasury Board): Mr. Speaker, the maximum interest rate that may be charged on N.H.A. loans in the second quarter of 1968 will be established on April 1 by the application of a formula which works automatically. This rate is the average long term government bond rate for the last four Wednesdays in March, plus 2J per cent. Section 4 of the National Housing Act provides the basis for this formula.
