LIB

Douglas Charles Abbott (Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Finance)

Liberal

Mr. ABBOTT:

For security reasons it is not considered in the public interest to publish information regarding stocks of an imported commodity like tea, on the basis of which it might be possible for the enemy to draw inferences regarding the movement of ships on the high seas. Stocks vary considerably from day to day, and release of the figures for any particular date might also lead to unwarranted and undesirable speculation as to changes in consumer rations.
