Hon. Robert L. Stanfield (Leader of the Opposition):
Mr. Speaker, I thought I saw the Minister of National Health and Welfare in the House a moment ago. Now that he has returned I should like to ask him, in view of certain remarks he made yesterday in Winnipeg, whether it is his position and the position of the government that the hospital plans operated by the provinces are generally inefficient in terms of operation and particularly in terms of cost control?
