John George Diefenbaker

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Diefenbaker:

Mr. Chairman, in view of the fact that any work that will be done under the Saskatchewan river dam irrigation plan will be under the Prairie Farm Rehabilitation Act, and the fact that Mr. Thomson, who administers this branch, has spoken highly of the efficacy and economic efficiency of the dam, both as a means of developing power and for purposes of prairie farm

Prairie Farm Rehabilitation Act rehabilitation, is the minister in a position to bring the House of Commons and the country up to date on the question I asked this morning?
I put my question in this way because I do not want to transgress upon the propriety of asking a question that would imply that I had certain information. I therefore simply ask whether the minister is prepared to give an interim report on the present situation, and in particular on the matter to which my question was directed this morning.

Topic:   PRAIRIE FARM REHABILITATION
Subtopic:   AMENDMENT OF ACT TO PROVIDE FOR APPOINTMENT AND SUPERANNUATION OF CERTAIN OFFICERS AND EMPLOYEES, ETC.
