1. Subsidies authorized by P.C. 3465, April 29, 1943, and subsequent orders in council have been payable, subject to varying conditions on wood fuel delivered to a dealer or held for his account on and after March 5, 1943. (By P.C. 7802 dated Oct. 6, 1944 subsequent payments of subsidy were restricted to wood fuel delivered to or held for a dealer's accounts after Sept. 30, 1945.)

2. Subsidies have been payable, subject to varying conditions, since the passage of P.C. 3465, April 29, 1943, and continue to be payable.

3. Commodity Prices Stabilization Corporation Ltd. on the directions of the timber controller (originally the coal controller, followed by the wood fuel controller during the successive periods in which wood fuel was under their respective jurisdictions.)

4. Subject to certain limitations, subsidy was payable at the rate of SI.00 per standard cord of 128 cubic feet on wood fuel contracted for and cut on or before Dec. 31, 1944, and delivered to a dealer or held for his account on and after March 5, 1943. (By P.C. 7802 dated Oct. 6, 1944 subsequent payments of subsidy were restricted to wood fuel delivered to or held for a dealer's accounts after Sept. 30, 1945.)

Subject to certain limitations, subsidy was payable on wood fuel as described above covering such portion of the wood fuel dealers' transportation costs as the timber controller might specify.

Subject to certain limitations, subsidy is payable to wood fuel dealers on the certification of the timber controller on such transactions and in such localities where, in the judgment of the timber controller, a subsidy or bonus is necessary, having regard to the costs of production and transportation, to get the

necessary quantity of wood fuel produced and transported. The rate at which such subsidy is payable is specified by the timber controller in each individual case.

5. To Sept. 30, 1945, subsidy amounting to $2,158.45 has been paid to wood fuel dealers in the Yukon.

6. No final date for the discontinuance of subsidies on wood fuel has yet been established.

7. To obtain a subsidy a dealer must apply to the regional wood fuel officer, Vancouver (British Columbia and Yukon) for an eligibility, giving full particulars of his anticipated costs of purchase and of handling the particular lot of wood in question. If, in the opinion of the regional wood fuel officer, such wood is really required and a subsidy is necessary, the eligibility will be granted. Then when the dealer has bought and moved that wood to his yard or delivered it to his customers, he must apply for the agreed subsidy stating the exact costs incurred and attaching to his application evidence in the shape of receipts that such expenditures were actually made. The necessary forms are supplied by the regional wood fuel officer.

Subsidies, varying according to the needs in each particular instance, are payable to licensed wood fuel dealers:

(a) in the discretion of the timber controller ;

(b) where there are definite shortages of wood fuel in consuming centres;

(c) where, without such subsidies, dealers are unable to obtain wood, bring it to such consuming centres and sell it to consumers there within the price orders.
