It is considered that the public disclosure as to details of prices paid for various lands purchased by the Veterans Land Act would be detrimental to the administration and operation of the act and not in the best interests of the veterans for whom the lands are purchased. This is in accord with statement made to the house on April 17, 1946, page 951 of Hansard, and on subsequent occasions.

Note: The answer does not include properties purchased for individuals on direct application.

From December 1, 1941 to May 20, 1946, the ceiling prices on corn starch and on glucose were their basic period prices (i.e. maximum price established in the four-week period September 15 to October 11, 1941). On May 20, 1946, the rate of subsidy on imported corn was reduced and compensating increases of li cents per pound at the manufacturers' level on both starch and glucose were authorized.
