Mr. DOUGLAS (Weybum):

There are a
number of matters I should like to discuss, but perhaps it would be better to leave them until the bill is before us in committee.
I should like, however, to ask the minister if he can give us certain information now which would enable us to discuss this matter more intelligently when the bill is brought down. For instance, I have in mind what sums of money have been spent under the act, what projects have been undertaken, where they are located and their cost. If the minister had a table containing this information, perhaps he could place it on Hansard. If we had this information before us, I am sure it would save us asking a number of questions when the bill is brought down.
