Mr. T. A. Kidd (Kingston City):

Mr. Speaker, I want to direct a question to the Minister of Veterans Affairs in reference to

the veterans who are at present attending university, and the recommendations made by the national council of student veterans. When can the veterans at present attending university expect an announcement in regard to their application for assistance? This has further reference to a question I directed to the minister on March 17, which appears at page 1560 of Hansard.

Mr. Kidd:

I want to ask the minister, through you, Mr. Chairman, why he has not returned this money. There is another case that I read of only yesterday in the Financial Times. This case was not correctly stated by the foreign exchange control board. This man is a French Canadian, Mr. Peter Brunet, and when he was crossing the bridge en route to Ormstown, Quebec, the English-speaking officer asked him-he works in my constituency-what money he had. He told them he had $5. He thought they were asking him about United States money. They asked for his purse, and when he gave it to them they found $68 Canadian funds in it. They took $43 from him. That man was innocent.

That is why I find fault with the administration of the act. If we had the old trusted inland revenue men they would have told the man to leave the money there because they would know he was coming back on Monday morning. But what was done? These other

Foreign Exchange Control officers put it in an envelope and sent it behind the iron curtain to the foreign exchange control board. The man was penalized and the money has not been returned. The minister knows both these cases and I am glad of this opportunity to bring them before him again. Will the minister state why these moneys have not been returned to Miss Renaud and Mr. Brunet.
