Mr. HOWE:

We have produced in Canada all the mobile equipment that goes with a division, in fact two divisions-some 9,000 vehicles, of which 7,000 are of the type of armoured car my hon. friend has in mind. We also have production of universal carriers for carrying machine guns and other equipment that go with a division. We have manufactured in this country and have a very large production of all the mechanized equipment of a division apart from tanks.
