Clarence Decatur Howe (Minister of Reconstruction; Minister of Munitions and Supply)

Liberal

Mr. HOWE:

The wording of this question is such that the answer would be, "no expenditure." Canada has not been working on the development of the atomic bomb. It has been working on the development of atomic energy for peace-time purposes. I would not care to answer the question in its present form, other than to say that no expenditure has been made. If the hon. member wishes to reconstruct the

question we should be pleased to give the amount spent on the other aspect of the matter.

2. For the past two years the wartime prices and trade board has issued production directives requiring underwear manufacturers to manufacture specific quantities of various types of garments within fixed time periods. Assistance has been given these directed manufacturers in securing the necessary materials and labour. As a result, the production of underwear for civilian use has, despite large military procurement, been maintained at high levels. Special emphasis has been placed on the manufacture of children's underwear and nightwear and current production is approximately double pre-war rates.
