Mr. ABBOTT:

If my hon. friend had approached me, that might have been arranged. In the case of equipment of that kind, while it -may not be a general rule, where need is shown for boy scouts and so on we arrange to declare tents surplus. They go through War Assets and are sold to the boy scouts. Under certain circumstances, where things were available from surplus stocks, we have lent them in cases of emergency. I should hope there would not be any feeling that these tents could not be obtained.
