Mr. Sauve:

This afternoon the Minister of Finance, answering a question by my hon. friend from Essex East, told us that the council could not be headed by a minister-that it was preferable to have somebody independent in charge, and so on. The government suggests that the council should consist of between 14 and 24 members. Is it the intention to appoint other ministers to the board, for example the Minister of Labour or the Minister of Trade and Commerce, or will the board be composed entirely of persons outside the government?
