Hon. Gerard Pelletier (Secretary of State):

Mr. Speaker, the fact is that there exists a certain number of hostels that are set up by private organizations. They are subsidized by the federal government and the Department of

the Secretary of State in its summer activities program when they comply with certain criteria.

However, as to the hon. member's reference to young people staying idle in hostels for long periods, I must say that this would not involve a hostel that would be financed by the federal government, because the maximum period that young people are allowed to spend in these is two days.

ANNOUNCEMENT OF NAMES OF RECIPIENTS OF SPORTS CANADA SCHOLARSHIPS

PC

Steve Eugene Paproski

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Steven E. Paproski (Edmonton Centre):

Mr. Speaker, I wish to direct a related question to the Minister of National Health and Welfare. When will the minister be announcing the names of the 500 recipients of Sports Canada Scholarships, in view of the fact that there must be at least 1,000 of the 3,200 applicants still up in the air about what they are going to do this summer?

Hon. John C. Munro (Minister of National Health and Welfare):

Mr. Speaker, I believe that in the latter part of last week-I stand to be corrected as to the precise day- letters went out to all the successful applicants for scholarships, together with a press release formally announcing them. The press release may not have gone out until today, but certainly letters were mailed to all the applicants.

IMMIGRATION

ALLEGED USE OF MISLEADING ADVERTISING TO LURE IMMIGRANTS TO CANADA

Mr. Andrew Brewin (Greenwood):

Mr. Speaker, my question, I think, should be addressed to the Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Manpower and Immigration. It arises out of the report entitled "Riverdale," which I think is the same report referred to by the hon. member for York South; it is published by the Minister of Labour. Has the government seen the allegation in that report that misleading advertising and an unsuitable and dishonest sales campaign are still being used to lure immigrants to Canada? Would the minister look into this part of the report and take whatever action is required to end this sort of activity?

Mr. Ray Perrault (Parliamentary Secretary to Minister of Manpower and Immigration):

Mr. Speaker, we have at the present time no advertising sales campaign abroad as such, nor has there been a campaign of this type for quite some time. A report received by our research branch shows that out of 3,500 immigrants who arrived in 1969 and who were surveyed fairly recently, only 4 per cent of

Mr. Speaker:

Order, please. I suggest to the hon. member for Greenwood and to the parliamentary secretary that that question really was not supplementary. It might have been related to the first question, but we seem to have drifted away little by little from the original question asked 15 minutes ago. For the moment the Chair will recognize the hon. member for Temiscamingue.
