Mr. Leonel Beaudoin (Richmond):
Mr. Speaker, may I
ask a question of the Minister of State for Urban Affairs?
In view of recent news reports, would the hon. minister confirm or deny that his department is presently discussing with the provinces the matter of amending the building regulations administered by Central Mortgage and Housing Corporation in order to reduce interest rates and enable more low income families to buy houses?
