Mr. MACKENZIE KING:

No, but I wanted to point out as respects the questions asked by the hon. member that a good many of them relate to matters of government policy, and where they do they will have to be answered by saying that the answer will be made known when the policy is announced.

MUNITIONS AND SUPPLY-CONTRACTS

LIB

Clarence Decatur Howe (Minister of Munitions and Supply)

Liberal

Mr. HOWE:

Mr. Speaker, this question in practically identical form was asked and answered a short time ago. Question 2 involves the names and other particulars of several hundred contracts, and it is practically impossible to spare the clerical staff to go over that ground once again. It seems to me that the ground is covered by the statement I made to the house yesterday. The same answer applies to the hon. member's question

Mo ruing Sittings

on to-day's order paper with regard to the

Allied Supplies Limited, and I would ask the sponsor to have these two questions dropped.
