Mr. MAYHEW: (Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Finance)

Liberal

1. No.

2, 3 and 4. Answered by No. 1.

5 and 6. Ceilings on horseshoeing were established for individual operators at levels established by their charges during the basic period, September 15 to October 11, 1941. Such ceilings were established by the wartime prices and trade regulations, which became effective December 1, 1941. Maximum prices for new entrants after the basic period were established at levels comparable to other operators in the same area. Horseshoeing was suspended from price control effective July 8, 1946.

7. The board has no information as to the prices of horseshoes and nails in September, 1939. Both horseshoes and nails have been subject to price control since December 1, 1941. The original basic period ceilings established by prices charged by the individual seller during the period September 15 to October 11, 1941, were adjusted upward on April 1. 1946, to reflect the increased cost of production of iron and steel, 10 per cent in the case of maximum prices of horse nails and $1.00 per hundred pounds at the manufacturers' level with corresponding amounts for subsequent sellers in the case of horseshoes.

8. Answered by No. 1.
