Hon. George Hees (Prince Edward-Hasiings):
Mr. Speaker, I have a question for the Acting Prime Minister. In view of the statement made yesterday by Alberta's minister of welfare that he was coming to the welfare conference "not to discuss welfare programs but to discuss unemployment, which is causing welfare costs to soar, and to find out what the federal government is going to do to reduce unemployment", will the Acting Prime Minister take the opportunity tomorrow on motions to outline to the House what answer the federal government has to give to provincial inquiries of this kind which are made with great seriousness? At the same time, would he outline to the House and the country what estimate the government has concerning the number of new jobs its present program to fight unemployment is expected to produce in the next three months?
