Hon. IAN MACKENZIE (Minister of Pensions and National Health):
I have not seen the report to which the hon. member has referred. The intention of the government cannot be decided upon until the committee on social security shall have made its report to the house. Of course the progress of that committee is a matter beyond my control. The introduction of any measure would certainly depend largely on the progress made in the committee referred to.
