Following the questions asked by the hon. member for Saint John-

Albert, will the minister say whether a farmer or businessman who retired to the United States would be permitted to have all his income in Canada sent to him in the United States at the official rate?

Mr. Jackman:

Is there any particular trick about being granted a change of status? Would that apply to a person who has been there, say, for a year, and has taken up domicile?

Mr. Jackman:

If the hon. member is correct in saying that there is an apparent cost of $981 million incurred by the foreign exchange control board, how much is the active asset carried against that cost? When we revalued the currency we lost the premium of ten per cent which we had paid out to acquire some of those assets. What was the profit when the foreign exchange control board took over all the gold holdings of the banks of Canada, and perhaps any private holdings as well? I think the take-over price was at the old rate of $20 an ounce, and then it was revalued upward. The board would have a fortuitous profit there at the expense of the banks and the holders of gold in Canada. Will the minister tell us what the active asset is against this $981 million exchange, and how much profit was made by the board when gold was taken over?
