1. Yes.

2. Yes.

3. Yes.

4. The co-operative has been advised that application for the import of machinery will be considered by the department and approval granted where it can be shown that the production of items from these machines will be of assistance to Canada's economy.

No assurances have been given in the matter of steel; this for the reason that there is only a limited quantity of steel rod available for nail production and this is being channelled to operating nail manufacturers. The quota of nail rod could only be increased at the expense of wire manufacturers for the agricultural trade, and this would not appear to be a solution. Further tonnages of nail rod for Saskatchewan Federated Co-operatives could only come from tonnages allotted to manufacturers at present producing nails. To grant

Questions

this request would only result in a dislocation of nails in the normal distribution channels, and this would undoubtedly react unfavourably on certain localities and would not increase the total output. As nail manufacturers are endeavouring to supply all markets with such stocks as they produce, there would appear to be no useful purpose served in disturbing the present pattern.

LIB

Mr. McCANN: (Minister of National Revenue)

Liberal

1. Yes. Until December 1947, no commercial laboratory in Canada would quote on production runs of kodachrome printing. The national film board had conducted experiments in kodachrome release printing during the year. In December, following the Canadian government's dollar conservation program, printing materials were shipped from the United States to Ottawa and by January 1948 the greater part of kodachrome printing was being done at the national film board, Ottawa,

It has been possible to make a very large reduction in kodachrome printing orders placed in the United States. However, it has been necessary to continue to have a limited amount of printing done in the U.S. Where certain kodachrome films are being distributed in the U.S., it has been found cheaper to have additional prints made in that country rather than do .the printing in Canada and pay customs charges, express charges, etc., which would be levied if the prints were made in Canada and then shipped to the United States.
