Hon. Marcel Lambert (Edmonton West):

Mr. Speaker, I would like to raise a point with regard to question No. 955 standing in my name under date of January 30. The question is of a purely statistical nature, calling for information available here in Ottawa alone. It seems to me it should have been answered by now unless the government and the Public Service Commission are embarrassed by the information that it seeks to elicit.

(Mr. Dinsdale.]

Mr. Speaker, in the absence of the Minister of Veterans Affairs I should like to ask the Prime Minister whether the government is prepared to take early action to implement those recommendations of the Woods report, such as the recommendations in respect of increasing veterans pensions and the remodelling of the procedures of appeal, which would receive widespread approval.
