Hon. BROOKE CLAXTON (Minister of National Health and Welfare):
Mr. Speaker, consideration has been given to the point, but in view of the very considerable number of classes of people already in receipt of allowances and changes that have recently been made with regard to veterans and others, a decision has not been reached as yet. It is hoped that an announcement can be made within the next few weeks.
