Mr. A. M. NICHOLSON (Mackenzie):
I wish to direct a question to the Minister of Munitions and Supply (Mr. Howe). On July 22 the hon. member for Rosetown-Biggar (Mr. Coldwell) asked a question regarding the crude oil supply as it affected the Consumers' Cooperative Refineries, Regina, Saskatchewan. I have a copy of the Saskatchewan Cooperative Consumer in which it is reported that no attempt has been made 95826-160
by the federal oil controller to apportion the available supplies of crude in an equitable manner. I wonder whether the minister could make any further statement beyond what he made on July 22 with regard to this very important matter.
