Mr. STANLEY KNOWLES (Winnipeg North Centre):
Before the orders of the day are proceeded with I should like to direct a question to the Minister of Munitions and Supply, of which I have sent him notice, together with a copy of a telegram in relation thereto, so I need not read the telegram now. Has the minister been advised of the fact that progress in connection with the Bannatyne avenue water project in Brook-lands, Manitoba, is being held up by a government order freezing six-inch cast iron water pipe? In view of the seriousness of this situation, will the minister give consideration to releasing a sufficient quantity of this water pipe to enable the contractor to proceed with this work before freeze-up?
