Stanley Howard Knowles (Whip of the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation)

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

Mr. Knowles:

Mr. Chairman, I rise merely to say that if it were not out of order I would be moving an amendment at this point to the effect that the figure of 25 per cent, where it appears here in two places, should read 40 per cent. We accept the nature of this formula, but we think the total percentage paid by the federal treasury should be of the order of 80 per cent rather than of the order of 50 per cent.
