Hon. C. D. HOWE (Minister of Reconstruction) :
Small towns are getting their share of building materials under equitable distribution methods or procedures administered by the wartime prices and trade board in the same manner as that in which all other supplies are distributed in Canada. Quotas are based on purchases during base period which is the year 1941. All distribution, whether to large or small towns, is on that basis.
