PC

George Clyde Nowlan (Minister of Finance and Receiver General)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Nowlan:

Mr. Chairman, I might say in answer to the question put to me by the hon. member for Iles-de-la-Madeleine that it is not proposed to have any minister of the crown, as such on the board. Of course, that does not preclude the setting up of interdepartmental committees or cabinet committees, as everyone in this committee well knows. But there will be no minister of the crown on the board as such.
