AVIATION GASOLINE

ANNOUNCEMENT OF LIFTING OF RESTRICTIONS ON JUNE 3, 1952

LIB

Clarence Decatur Howe (Minister of Defence Production; Minister of Trade and Commerce)

Liberal

Right Hon. C. D. Howe (Minister of Defence Production):

Mr. Speaker, the house will recall that on May 9 I made a statement regarding restrictions upon the consumption of aviation gasoline. This action was necessary because of decreased production in the United States brought about by a strike in

the petroleum industry. I am very pleased to be able to announce that on June 3 the restrictions on the use of aviation gasoline in Canada will be lifted. This action is in line with that taken in the United States. The situation there has improved very materially with the reopening of refineries in that country and it is expeoted that within due time this situation will be reflected in increased supplies available to Canadian users.
