Mr. Speaker, may I ask the parliamentary secretary to the President of the Treasury Board whether he is in a position to answer my question of yesterday regarding N.H.A. interest rates.

Inquiries of the Ministry Mr. J. E. Walker (Parliamentary Secretary to President of the Treasury Board): Mr. Speaker, the maximum interest rate that may be charged on N.H.A. loans in the second quarter of 1968 will be established on April 1 by the application of a formula which works automatically. This rate is the average long term government bond rate for the last four Wednesdays in March, plus 2J per cent. Section 4 of the National Housing Act provides the basis for this formula.

Hon. R. A. Bell (Carleton):

Mr. Speaker, in the absence of the President of the Treasury Board may I direct my question to his parliamentary secretary. In view of the urgent need of house builders to make their spring plans, is the parliamentary secretary yet in a position to advise the house what the National Housing Act rate will be for the second quarter of 1968? Does he anticipate that it will be 9 per cent or more?
