Mr. A. D. Hales (Wellington):

Mr. Speaker, my question is directed to the Minister of Labour who is responsible for the operation of Information Canada. In view of the fact that the practice of marking up prices of goods on hand is frowned on by the Food Prices Review Board and by his colleague, the Minister of Consumer and Corporate Affairs, as well as by customers, would the minister explain why Information Canada is following the practice of marking up the prices of books on hand, as a matter of fact, even above the shelf list price?

Mr. A. D. Hales (Wellington):

Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Minister of Agriculture. In view of the extreme difficulty of administering the beef subsidy and in view of the fact that speculators could conceivably get two subsidy payments, has the minister alerted the audit services and Auditor General to be on the lookout for the discrepancies that are bound to occur?

Mr. A. D. Hales (Wellington):

Mr. Speaker, my question is directed to the Minister of Manpower and Immigration. As excessive government spending is one of the main factors leading to inflation, and in view of the fact the government has spent in the neighbourhood of $6 million to $9 million in the use of private placement offices to hire temporary help for government services, I should like to ask the minister why the Department of Manpower, the function of which is to find placements and jobs for people in government departments, is not hiring these people.

Mr. Hales:

Mr. Speaker, I always appreciate hearing the former minister speak on this important subject. I should like to ask the minister how he would handle the case which I am about to raise, and what changes he would make to the act to meet this kind of situation. I am speaking of a man who is offered a job paying $3.23 per hour, and after working only one day he discovers that by working he will be only $7 better off than if he stayed on $100 a week unemployment insurance. How would the former minister propose to get a man like that back to work?
