Hon. H. A. BRUCE (Parkdale):

I should like 'to direct a question 'to the Minister of Finance. Will the government initiate a save-the-fat campaign as the United States has done, to help relieve the serious shortage of fats in the United Kingdom.

March 19, 1946

Hon. H. A. BRUCE (Parkdale):

I should like to direct a question to the Postmaster General with regard to the food shortage in the United Kingdom. Will the Postmaster General facilitate and encourage the sending of parcels by Canadians to friends and relatives there by (a) reducing the postage to the same rate as was charged for parcels to members of the armed forces during the war; (b) speeding up the time taken in transit at the present time? Will he take the necessary steps to shorten the time for air mail letters to the United Kingdom? These letters frequently take from one to two weeks.

December 15, 1945

Mr. BRUCE:

I wish to make it quite clean that in my opinion this method of handling our returned cases would be very much better than the method which was followed during this war, and which was perhaps a hangover from the last war. On a former occasion I made a plea for federal help for civilian hospitals throughout Canada, and I should like to repeat that plea to-day. Without that assistance and the assistance of the provincial governments the municipalities will not be able to provide adequate care for our civilian population. The federal government should give that assistance because through taxation they are taking away the sources of revenue of these hospitals.
