Robert Henry Winters (Minister of Resources and Development)

Liberal

Mr. Winters:

1 and 2. In a letter dated December 13, 1950, the Minister of Resources and Development informed the Hon. D. G. McKenzie, president, International Peace Garden, that provision would be made for a grant of $15,000 in the 1951-52 estimates but that because of the government's heavy defence program and the resulting necessity to curtail other expenditures, it was most unlikely that a grant could be made for the fiscal year 1952-53. In a letter dated October 24, 1951, Mr. McKenzie asked that the grant again be extended, and in reply on November 6, 1951, the Minister of Resources and Development referred to his previous letter of December 13, 1950, and expressed his regrets that because of the reasons stated therein, it would be most difficult to recommend the grant for the fiscal year 1952-53.
3. Several members of parliament and other citizens have requested that provision again be made for the grant in the estimates for the fiscal year 1952-53.
4. Answered by Nos. 1 and 2.
