Mr. HOWE: (Minister of Munitions and Supply)

1. By the Department of Munitions and Supply-1,220,720 square feet.

A large quantity of British Columbia plywood, used for military purposes, was bought direct by contractors from manufacturers and no record of this is available. The timber controller arranged, however, for this to be supplied by the manufacturer direct to contractors on war projects at controlled prices, the same as government purchases.

2. 5/16 wallboard-$28 per m. square feet, f.o.b. mill carload lots; 5/16 weatherboard- $42.50 per m. square feet, f.o.b. mill, carload lots.

All purchases of plywood made by the department are direct from manufacturers, eliminating distributors' or dealers' profits.

The price paid for all plywood bought by the Department of Munitions and Supply was, and is, a controlled base price set by the timber controller in August, 1940. This controlled price was on an f.o.b. mill basis for standard items, plus actual freight to destination for carload lots, and uniform for all manufacturers. Arrangements were also made for the supply of less than carload lots at the carload rate from points where stocks were held, with the addition of local freight or trucking charges only.

3. The Canadian Western Lumber Company, Fraser Mills, B.C. B.C. Plywoods Limited, Vancouver, B.C.

4. See answer to No. 2. There has been no change in the market selling price of plywoods in British Columbia during the months mentioned, with the exception of the addition of sales tax imposed April 28, 1941.
