Hon. Romeo LeBlanc (Minister of Public Works):

Mr. Speaker, the Hon. Member should know from answers in the House that in fact, for a number of years, we had been given more than the normal allocation in social housing units in order to create some economic activity. It was understood all along by those who bothered to find out that, at one point, we would come back to the 22,500 level, where we are this year.

As for the reduction in one type of social housing, co-op housing, again I say to the Hon. Member that, as we face the problems of homeless singles, the problem of ex-psychiatric patients who have nowhere to go, and as we face the problems of rural and native housing, housing those who are the worst housed people in our country, we had to do some reallocation, and that is what I have done.

Hon. Romeo LeBlanc (Minister of Public Works):

Mr. Speaker, it would be totally irresponsible to try to give that sort of judgment without knowing the amount of space, the management conditions of the contract, and so on. Obviously the Hon. Member does not expect me to carry that kind of information in my head.

Hon. Romeo LeBlanc (Minister of Public Works):

Mr. Speaker, the Hon. Member is using every inflated arithmetical figure he can find. Obviously we cannot discuss this sort of issue without having all the figures in front of us. If the Hon. member wants me to appear before the committee and discuss this contract, I will do so.

Hon. Romeo LeBlanc (Minister of Public Works):

Mr. Speaker, I am not an expert on these matters, but it does seem to me that since we have access to a certain amount of money, by the savings of Canadians, and since these savings can be invested in either financial institutions or mortgages, the effect of the Hon. Member's proposal would be that the money available for residential mortgages would soon be exhausted. I would like to hear what the Hon. Member has to suggest as an alternative solution.
