June 2, 1939

Mr. HEAPS:

As one of the representatives of urban districts, I assume that many people will come to me and say that there is discrimination against urban mortgagors as contrasted with rural borrowers, and I may find it very difficult to explain. Not being a member of the banking and commerce committee I was not at the meetings. It is hard for the ordinary person to understand why the interest rate in an urban centre should be higher than in a rural area. Obviously it costs less for a mortgage company to do business in an urban district; at any rate that is the general impression. Perhaps the minister would put on record the reasons for this change in committee in the rate of interest on urban mortgages from 5 to 51 per cent, and why there should be this discrimination against urban mortgagors.

Mr. HEAPS:

Further, I complain that

even though the minister did make a brief statement yesterday on these matters, the draft conventions were approved by the governor in council almost four months ago. The matter is submitted to parliament in the dying hours of the session, although the papers could easily have been brought down many months earlier, thus giving hon. members who are interested an opportunity to study the recommendations.
