Progressive Conservative

Mr. Hawkes:

I wonder if the minister read the statement made by the Minister of Finance today. I think that the statement he quoted in Hansard is an historical statement. The Minister of Finance is quoted as saying:
I cannot rule out the possibility that the unemployment rate may rise even faster than this figure would imply.
The figure he is referring to is the original estimate of 8 per cent.
