William Daum Euler (Minister of Trade and Commerce)

Liberal

Mr. EULER:

This department is not particularly concerned with the construction once the plans are approved. Would my hon. friend expect that the minister could be particularly helpful in laying out and planning for a building which has to do with services such as these: aeronautical research, asbestos
research, building and construction industry, electrical committee, field crop diseases, fire hazard testing, forestry research, grain research, hydraulic research, magnesian research, magnetite research, mining research, national building code, national committee on fish culture, parasitology, plant hormones, radio research, rubber and metal research, storage and transport of food, wood research, compressed gas cylinder research, corrosion research, and so on. I am quite free to admit that I know very little about these things. Certainly I would not be able to design any building to take care of these services.
