Mr. RALSTON:

I have been looking into this matter and I find that it involves regulations, the interpretation of regulations and possibly some correspondence. My hon. friend will see that a question which follows, with regard to meat contractors, relates to the same matter, but has to do with the Department of Munitions and Supply. That department purchases this commodity while the Department of National Defence inspects it. I telephoned the Department of Munitions and Supply this morning and they told me they were engaged in getting this information. I really thought the questions were connected.
