Mr. W. M. Benidickson (Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Finance):
Mr. Chairman, the purpose to be served by this measure can be stated very briefly. It is to ensure, when fire loss occurs and replacement or repair of property destroyed or damaged is urgently and immediately required, and there is not sufficient money available in the parliamentary vote, that authority and funds will be available, subject to the approval of treasury board, to proceed with repairs and replacements without delay.
