Mr. W. GARFIELD CASE (Grey North):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to make an observation to the Prime Minister, having to do with his statement yesterday about prisoners of war. As you know, there are now appearing in the press pictures showing our prisoners of war in a very terrible condition. I have a letter from a friend who has a son who has been a prisoner of war since August, 1943. For a while they heard from him quite regularly and his letters were cheerful, but for a long time now they have not heard and these pictures are driving them almost to distraction. I should like to ask the Prime Minister if he could seek the cooperation of the press and periodicals and have them desist from publishing these pictures. I do not see where any good purpose is served by publishing them. Thousands of people whose loved ones are suffering under nazi tyranny must be undergoing terrible heartache because of these pictures. Because of what he said yesterday I know the Prime Minister is in sympathy with these people. I should like him to take this matter under advisement and seek the cooperation of the press and periodicals so that we may save these people some heartache and sorrow.

Mr. CASE:

I want to make representations to the minister on behalf of the dependents of air force personnel. This really applies to all services, but since we are dealing with the air minister's department I would urge these representations upon him. I was pleased to note from the statement made by the Minister of Veterans' Affairs that the gratuity portion will go to the deceased veteran's estate. I would urge the government to consider paying the rehabilitation credit to the widow of the deceased soldier, airman or naval rating. I can understand the great necessity for this in view of their position, where they are left practically on their own. I would also recommend that the government give consideration to a policy which would make provision for small loans to small businesses. I understand that the provision at the present time is quite extensive and makes allowance for large sums of money, but at the moment there are in my own riding individuals who could use credit to good advantage and who would be worthy of it. I think that consideration should be given to the question of small loans for small businesses.
