Mr. Bruce Howard (Parliamentary Secretary to Minister of Industry, Trade and Commerce):

Statistics Canada reports that: 1. No. The Corporations and Labour Unions Returns Act Report, Part II-1968-which summarizes returns made by labour unions under the Act was completed in draft form and printed while the Dominion Statistician was out of the country. It was held for review and approval of the Dominion Statistician on his return. Some parts of the textual material of the report were not considered to be appropriate and therefore it became necessary to amend the text and correct some typographical errors before presentation to the Minister of Industry, Trade and Commerce for tabling in Parliament. No charts or other summary tables were altered or deleted from the original draft on which the analyses were based.

2. At no time between the original drafting of the report and tabling in Parliament was there any discussion concerning content of the report with anyone connected with any union organizations nor were any copies of the original draft made available to any union officials or organizations.

James Alexander Jerome (Parliamentary Secretary to the President of the Privy Council)

Liberal

Mr. Jerome:

Mr. Speaker, I should like to indicate to the House at this time that, in keeping with the practice that has prevailed on some occasions in the past when the House has risen for an extended recess on a Friday, we are endeavouring to continue during the rest of this week to answer as many questions as possible. I am hopeful that we will be in a position to deposit answers to quite a substantial number of questions on Friday. This will, of course, require unanimous consent to call written questions, but we shall be seeking such consent.

John Edward Broadbent

Mr. Broadbent:

Mr. Speaker, I should like to inquire whether or not it would be possible to answer question No. 425 which has been on the order paper for fully three months. It pertains to grants and other forms of financial assistance to some 95 corporations. It seems to me, given the possibility of an election coming up soon, that the answer to this question could be rather pertinent.
