INCOME TAX

CONDITIONS AT PETERBOROUGH OFFICE


On the orders of the day:


PC

Gordon Knapman Fraser

Progressive Conservative

Mr. G. K. Fraser (Peterborough West):

should like to ask a question of the Minister of National Revenue. On Saturday I was in the temporary branch office of the income tax division in Peterborough. I know the minister would like to help in this connection.

I found there over fifty people standing in line, waiting to have their income tax returns checked. There were six in the office, but only one man available to check. That one man was doing his best.

Gordon Knapman Fraser

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Fraser:

My question is this: Will the minister see if he cannot get sufficient staff in that office on Saturdays, when farmers and others come in from the countryside? The office serves an area of eighty or ninety miles around. I would ask the minister to see that these people are properly served.

Mr. Fraser:

I wish to thank the minister.

I believe it is partly because of the advertising that they are coming in early like this; and of course Peterborough is always on time.
