The reason I asked the
question is that I had an opportunity of visiting some coating mills in Ontario and had a conversation with some of the men connected with them. One gentleman, in particular, an Englishman, who was very familiar with the manufacture of paper in the Old Country, stated that the Canadian manufacturers were very much behind the times in their methods. We are giving a very high protection on this partic-
ular line of commodity-35 per cent-and I think, before we pass the item, we ought to be reasonably sure that we are not encouraging the maintenance of these old-fashioned and obsolete methods of manufacture. It, seems a very high protection.
