Mr. St. Laurent:
With respect to the introduction of legislation, we do wish to bring forward at the earliest possible moment all of the legislation announced. The housing legislation would have been ready at the very first day of the session had it not been for the correspondence that is still going on with representatives of provincial governments. The Minister of Reconstruction and Supply (Mr. Winters) wished to get as clear a statement of the views of the provincial governments as possible before bringing in a printed bill; otherwise the provincial administrations might believe it to be too late to make any further suggestions.
