October 10, 1979

Mr. Axworthy:

Is the minister prepared to meet with his friends and associates in the residential construction industry who state that increased interest rates will result in a total depression in the construction industry, that they have total disregard for his mortgage credit plan, and therefore will he be prepared to withdraw it when his friends and associates tell him to?

October 10, 1979

Mr. Lloyd Axworthy (Winnipeg-Fort Garry):

Mr. Speaker, I also have a question for the Minister of Finance, who is enjoying his small deficits. In view of the fact that since his government came to power the carrying costs on a $60,000 mortgage have gone up by $1,500, which totally cancels out any benefits under his proposed mortgage credit plan, is the minister prepared to withdraw that plan and revise and amend it so that we will have a plan which will reduce mortgage interest rates so that Canadians can buy homes?
