Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (C.C.F.)

Mr. Barneii:

I should like to raise one or two questions in regard to subclause 3 of clause 4 of the bill. One of my questions is in connection with homes for special care which, as I understand it, is defined in subclause 4 to cover the term as used in subclause 3. Included in that definition in subclause 4 is the term "nursing homes". Now, I should like to know just what the definition is and what distinction is going to be made as between nursing homes and convalescent hospitals in the various provinces. What is the distinction between a nursing home and
Unemployment Assistance convalescent hospital? Apparently a nursing home can be included but a convalescent hospital is excluded?
