Mr. Claude Ellis (Regina City):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to direct a question to the Minister of Public Works. Was the minister enunciating government housing policy when he said in Toronto on Thursday night to delegates to the fifteenth annual convention of the housebuilders' association that builders could expect little or no help from the government in the future? More specifically, does this mean that the government will refuse to grant further money for direct lending through N.H.A. if the supply of mortgage money from conventional lenders continues to decline?
