Mt. ABBOTT:

Naturally, the extent to which it may be considered advisable to re-embark on price oontrol will govern the number of employees and the type of organization which the board will have to maintain. I repeat, however, that it is not anid never has been the intention of the government to go back into an over-all price control, or wage control, which is a necessary corollary to that. I think it is fair to say that any ceilings which may be reimposed will be very limited, and that is my understanding of the recommendations of the prices committee.
