Mr. H. C. GREEN (Vancouver South):
Mr. Speaker, I should like to ask a question of the Minister of Munitions and Supply arising out of a press dispatch from Washington appearing in this morning's paper. The dispatch states:
A production council to utilize to the limit the manufacturing facilities of Canada, Britain and the United States in fabricating the weapons required for the united nations on all fronts, will be set up here this week.
That is, in Washington. Would the minister tell the house whether or not that report is accurate. It then goes on to say:
Canada will not be represented directly on the production board, but its interests will be handled by Nelson.
That is Mr. Donald M. Nelson of the United States. Is this report accurate; and if 30, why is it that Canada is not being represented?
