Mr. S. J. Korchinski (Mackenzie):
Madam Speaker, I have a question for the Minister of National Revenue. It has come to my attention that many employees who buy Canada Savings Bonds through the payroll deduction system are not provided with a T-4 slip showing this deduction, as is done with deductions for the Canada Pension Plan, unemployment insurance, union dues, et cetera. Would it be possible for the Minister to include a box on the T-4 slip which would include

the amount of interest paid, since this is a deductible item, and not have the amount paid provided only on demand. People who purchase bonds in that fashion should be able to include this interest on their income tax returns and not have it overlooked.
