Hon. R. B. HANSON (Leader of the Opposition):

I desire to ask a question of
the Minister of Finance. It will be recalled that on July 21, as reported in Hansard, page 4447, I asked the minister whether it was proposed, as indicated in an item appearing in the Ottawa Citizen of July 20, to establish a new supervisory authority in order to exercise greater control of governmental expenditures, and particularly to eliminate needless extravagance. In his reply the minister stated that a specific proposal for the watching of a certain class of expenditure had been discussed, and that one of his colleagues would be in a position to make a statement before the close of the session. When may we expect to have that statement?
