Clarence Decatur Howe (Minister of Transport; Minister of Munitions and Supply)

Liberal

Mr. HOWE:

I think this question is

wrongly worded. There is no regional controller of transport for the province of Quebec. Perhaps it refers to an administrator in the wartime prices and trade board. I would ask that the hon. member reword the question.
