Mr. W. M. Benidickson (Kenora-Rainy River):

Mr. Speaker, I would like to address a question to the acting prime minister, who I assume is the Minister of Finance (Mr. Fleming). I wonder whether the minister has seen a reported statement by his colleague the Minister of National Revenue, who sits with him traditionally on budget preparation committees, and whether he concurs in the statement reported to have been made by the Minister of National Revenue in London the other day, that in the next budget income tax increases are more likely than reductions, and that the next budget would undoubtedly have a deficit.
