Mr. J. A. McBain (Elgin):

My question is directed to the Minister of National Health and Welfare and concerns the Canadian Youth Conference on Smoking and Health which is now being held in Ottawa. I hope

Inquiries of the Ministry the Minister will not take my question as a criticism of this conference, but it may be helpful in case future conferences are held. I wonder if the hon. lady could advise the House why the Ontario delegates to this Canadian Youth Conference on Smoking and Health were selected only from the Ottawa and Cornwall regions? Why were the tobacco regions of Ontario and Quebec not given an opportunity to have students appointed as delegates?

Mr. McBain:

I am thinking of the casual farm labourer who may work for one farmer for a number of days and who receives $240. During that time the farmer is exempted from contributions, but then the labourer goes back and works for him two days more, which brings him over the exemption limit. Is the farmer in such a case required to go back and make the exemption on those last two days of employment? Also when does the casual labourer cease to become self-employed? He may work in a number of places during the year. For example he may earn $1,000, but he has not been at any one place long enough to earn $250.
