Mr. POTTIER:

I do not wish to prolong this debate, but I fear that there may be too great centralization in the post-war period. I hope the minister and his officials will not forget-the minister has made reference to this-that there are establishments not only at Halifax and Saint John but at other places. These establishments have the personnel, the equipment and the machine capacity to take care of all repairs. These yards have served their purpose for the present time and I think the time will come *when you will need them. At least they should be kept in good condition and kept operating when at all possible.
