Right Hon. L. S. Si. Laurent (Prime Minister):

The hon. member for Wood Mountain (Mr. Argue) asked yesterday about proposed amendments to the Prairie Farm Assistance Act. The information I have received is that proposed amendments to the Prairie Farm Assistance Act have been drafted by the Department of Justice on instructions from the officials of the Department of Agriculture, but have not yet had the final approval of the minister, and have not yet been submitted to council.
