Mr. CASTLEDEN:

I was quite pleased to hear the statement of the hon. member who spoke for the manufacturers' association. Apparently we have made a great step forward, and I am quite sure we are going to get some action soon. The minister stated in September 1939 that not one contract offered by the war supply board was accepted with the five per cent limitation. Perhaps the hon. member should explain the reason for that, or would the minister make a statement?
