Right Hon. C. D. Howe (Minister of Trade and Commerce):
I have not seen the newspaper in question, but I am aware of the situation. I am a little surprised that the hon. member should refer to the Buy-American Act as an obscure piece of legislation. It is a piece of legislation about which we know a great deal. All I can say is that representations are being made in so far as the act applies to military purchases.
