Mr. William C. Frank (Middlesex):
Mr. Speaker, I should like to address a question to the Minister of Finance. On June 6, 1973, the minister said that the current expansion of the economy over the past six months had been 11.6 per cent in real terms, as found on page 4491 of Hansard, and according to the Economic Council Review, page 13, the rate was in fact 9.4 per cent for the first half and 4.75 per cent for the second half. Can the minister tell the House if this trend toward a lower gross national product will continue in 1974?
