Mr. Speaker, the hon. member has long experience in the House. He knows that I cannot talk about what will be in the budget, if anything will be in the budget or not be in the budget.
I can confirm that we as a government and as members of Parliament are concerned about the plight of children living in poverty. I look forward to measures being taken over coming months to help deal with that.
As far as talking about what is in the budget and confirming what is in the budget, he knows as well as I do that this cannot be done by me or anybody on this side today.
