James Lorimer Ilsley (Minister of Finance and Receiver General)

Mr. ILSLEY:

,

1. There are no allotment quotas on this type of machinery by provinces. However, the farm and construction machinery 72537-96

administration have arranged with every manufacturer and importer of potato machinery to allocate supplies of potato machines which each will receive in 1943, as well as any inventory carried over from 1942, to the various sections of the country based on a percentage of an average of 1940, 1941 and 1942 sales in each area.

2. There has been no allotment of potato machinery to individual machinery manufacturers by provinces. Each of the board's ration officers1 keeps running records of agricultural machinery to ascertain how many machines are available and what implement firms have them. Every effort is made to allocate farm machinery in an equitable manner.
