PC

Mr. Cole (Verdun-La Salle):

Progressive Conservative

1. Yes.

2. (a) Mr. Rhys M. Sale, Ford Motor Company of Canada, Windsor, reports:

We have not at this time any war orders as such. We have supplied a few commercial type vehicles to the forces which is normal business and does not relate to any emergency. We are doing some experimental engineering and design work for Department of National Defence but have no orders for products of this design.

(b) Mr. Albert Deschamps, Montreal, advises:

Albert Deschamps & Company, contracting engineers, Montreal, had a general contract to remodel the Ford hotel for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, and the work has been completed.

(c) Mr. William Mainwaring, vice-president, British Columbia Electric Company, Vancouver, advises:

The B.C. Electric Company supplies light and power under provincial regulation and therefore would have no occasion to enter into any contract with the government, but it does supply electrical energy and gas to various government departments and also to companies which undoubtedly have contracts with the government. I feel sure Mr. Pouliot had in mind contracts for materials of one type or another and such would be entirely foreign to our business.
