Mr. MacNaughl:

Mr. Chairman, on March 23 the Minister of Labour announced in the House that the winter works house building incentive program period for construction was being extended to April 15, 1965. In making that announcement he said it was the Government's intention to place before the House a supplementary estimate for the fiscal year 1965-66 to authorize the extension to the program. On May 18 supplementary estimates (A), the ones now under consideration, for the fiscal year ending March 31, 1966, were tabled in the House. These estimates consist solely of an item designed to authorize the extension of the program. In order to make payments on claims on hand and claims that are being received daily in respect of houses 22620-169J
