Mr. SPENCER:

I take it for granted that this bill will give the government power to increase that fund to any extent that may be desired if it is in the interests of the country to do so?

Mr. SPENCER:

Is it the intention of

the minister to take full advantage of the clause in the Bank of Canada Act permitting us to borrow. It is well known, of course, that the only money which goes to the shareholders is the 4) per cent, and that the profits beyond that will come back into the treasury. Therefore, to the extent borrowing is done through that system it will be done in the oheapest possible way.

Then, I should like to ask the minister this question: Does he intend to do any borrowing outside of Canada? Personally I am opposed to the dominion government borrowing, at all. However if it is going to borrow I hope it will do so within and not outside of Canada.

In what are these
