In speaking on the subject which I intend to discuss now for just a moment, may I say that I ordinarily would have raised it later on the estimates, but I am not quite sure that it neatly fits into any one particular category. I refer to the matter of household chemicals. Before asking the minister the question I have in mind, however, and in view of the great amount of attention which has been paid by the members of the C.C.F. group to the Saskatchewan medical care plan, I think I should say just a word about that situation. -
Much has been said about it except who is to pay for it. On June 13 I asked the Minister of Finance whether the premier of Saskatchewan had as yet approached him for federal assistance to help pay for the Saskatchewan medical care program. That question was received with cries of anguish from the hon. member for Assiniboia.
