Mr. ELLIOTT:

I am very much obliged
to the minister for his explanation, but it does not get us very far. As I understand the situation-and I just want to see if I have it correctly-with the exception of Quebec nothing has so far been received from any of the nine provinces as to what they expect their requirements from this government to be for the year that will start about six weeks from now. If I am correct also in my interpretation of what the minister says, he and the other members of the government have at the present time no idea whether relief similar to what has been given for this year will be required for another year, or whether no relief will be required at all. Am I correct in interpreting the minister's statement?
