Mr. Simon de Jong (Regina East):

Mr. Speaker, my second question is for the same Minister.
The Finance Committee has issued a good report dealing with credit card charges, bank services charges, and yet we are afraid that once the public spotlight is removed the banks will revert back to former practices as they are now beginning to do with increases in credit charges. Is the Minister prepared to introduce legislation to regulate the banks to ensure that there will be fair banking practices not only for consumers but for the small business community of the country?
