Mr. Lesage:

May I finish my answer. The total is 6,343 loans of $3,000 each, and of a total number of loans of over 300,000 it is less than 2 per cent.

Mr. Argue:

Does that take into account this kind of a situation? A farmer may have obtained two $1,500 loans, shall we say, six months apart. Are these actually single loans that are not over $3,000?

Mr. Lesage:

It is two minutes to ten. The officials of the department who were supposed to be here this evening have not yet arrived. They will be here when this matter comes up again and I shall be in a position to answer my hon. friend's question at that time. Perhaps the chairman would call it ten o'clock.

FLOODS-REPLIES TO EXPRESSIONS OF SYMPATHY


GOVERNMENT HOUSE Ottawa 2. Office of the Secretary to the Governor General February 6th, 1953. Dear Mr. Speaker: Immediately upon receipt of your letter of the 4th February, the text of the resolution passed by the House of Commons on Monday, the 2nd February, was forwarded to the private secretary to the Queen to be laid before Her Majesty. Word has now been received from the private secretary to the Queen stating that Her Majesty greatly appreciates this resolution and that he was commanded to convey to the Governor General the Queen's sincere gratitude for the sympathy and generous offer of help to which this resolution gives expression. Yours sincerely, LIONEL MASSEY, Secretary to the Governor General. The Hon. W. Ross Macdonald, Q.C., Speaker of the House of Commons, Ottawa, Ontario. ROYAL NETHERLANDS EMBASSY February 12th, 1953. Dear Mr. Speaker, You were so extremely kind to send me with your letter of February 4th copies of the House of Commons debates of February 2nd and 3rd in which reference was made to the dreadful disaster which has befallen my country, as well as a copy of your letter to the Honourable Lester B. Pearson, in respect to the resolution referred to in the Debates. I need not emphasize how grateful my government and people are for the sympathy and help from other friendly nations, last but not least from Canada. On Sunday last Her Majesty Queen Juliana spoke to her people on the occasion of our national day of mourning and the Queen said:- "The greater the misery caused by the losses we have sustained, the more deeply do we feel the fraternity of mankind which has found an echo in the breasts of men and women far beyond the confines of our country. Men of the free world have responded to the fierce tides with a mighty tide of Christian charity". Yesterday a motion in parliament was proposed, unanimously carried, and worded as follows:- "The Second Chamber of the States General deeply touched by the tide of compassion and love for his neighbour, as well as feelings of unity, which has been so strikingly demonstrated not only by the people of The Netherlands but which has also come to us across our borders as a demonstration of the unity of peoples, express to all friendly governments and peoples their gratefulness which they hope they will be able to prove themselves worthy of for the benefit of the world". Very sincerely yours,


A. H. J. LOVINK


The Honourable W. Ross Macdonald, Speaker of the House of Commons, House of Commons, Ottawa. The following is a translation of the communication received:

His Majesty is deeply touched by the sympathy which the House of Commons has expressed for the Belgian people, so sorely tried by the recent floods. The King would be most grateful to Your Excellency if you would be so kind as to request the honourable the Speaker of the House of Commons to convey to that exalted body his most heartfelt gratitude for the sympathy it has so cordially expressed to the Belgian people as well as for the very kind intentions it has voiced with regard to the victims. I avail myself of this opportunity, sir, to renew the assurances of my highest consideration. CARTON de WIART Grand Marshal of the Court BN The Canadian Ambassador, Brussels.
