Mr. Flynn:

Mr. Chairman, our friends in

the official opposition have chosen the occasion of the debate on this resolution to bring up the whole problem of fiscal relations between the federal government and the provinces. If the discussion had remained within the terms of the resolution, a debate of such scope would not normally have been allowed. Personally, I have no intention of exhausting the subject, or of expressing all my thoughts on the matter. I shall only make a few remarks which are prompted by the speeches made this afternoon in the house by the hon. members for Hull (Mr. Caron) and for Lapointe (Mr. Brassard).

Mr. Chairman, I must say at the outset that I am rather surprised at the statements made by the hon. members for Hull and Lapointe, because they prove the former government's fiscal formula to have been a failure.

Mr. Flynn:

Mr. Chairman, if I am permitted to answer the hon. member for Bonavista-Twillingate I will say that what I proposed was a formula based on two principles: the first one, maximum fiscal responsibility; and, the second, federal aid to the poorer provinces in the form of a subsidiary measure on a temporary basis; but "temporary" may be as long as needed.
