Mr. KNIGHT:

I understand that, but I assume some fraction would consist of tents, but in any case war assets have refused to supply those tents to these boy scouts. Perhaps the minister will make some comment on the whole situation, but I should like to ask if any of that material is material left over from the first war. I do not mean the war of 1939-45, but whether any of that material has been lying about since the first great war. I should also like the minister to comment on whether any of this bedding, for example, would be suitable for civilian as well as for army purposes. I think there is no harm in airing these matters; it is in the interest of the public that they should be aired.
