Mr. Rynard

Progressive Conservative

1. What amount of 3 per cent Perpetual Bonds was outstanding as of December, 1971 and what was the quotation?

2. What consideration has been, or is being, given to a due date for the 3 per cent Perpetual Bonds?

Hon. )ohn N. Turner (Minister of Finance): 1. As at

December 31, 1971, $55 million perpetual bonds were outstanding; market price $42 per $100 bond.

2. Careful consideration was given to establishing a maturity date on the perpetual bonds prior to September 15, 1966, when the last coupon on the coupon registered bond certificates became payable. The Federal Government has from time to time reviewed its policy with respect to these bonds and does not feel that it is in the country's best interest to redeem or fix a maturity date on these obligations at this time.
