Hon. C. D. HOWE (Minister of Munitions and Supply):

Mr. Speaker, my hon. friend gave me notice of this question, and I have the information. I am told by the coal controller that there is no slow-down at the Indian Cove Coal mine for lack of railway orders, but rather that it arises from the difficulty of obtaining railway cars. Apparently there has been a bad blizzard in that district, and the railway company has not been able to move any equipment.
