Liberal

1. Yes.
2. During the period that raw materials were under strict control all farm machinery manufacturers submitted their requirements of iron and steel to the administrator of farm and road machinery and municipal service equipment who in turn arranged with the steel controller of the Department of Munitions and Supply to approve the orders on the steel producers. Under this arrangement all requests for allotments of iron and steel made by Co-operative Implement Company Ltd., Winnipeg, were pro-rated along with all other implement manufacturers and supplied by the steel producers.

Questions
With the termination of the war certain restrictions were removed and the steel controller was no longer obliged to approve steel mill schedules.
Malleable castings are currently produced for the farm implement industry under the direction of the priorities officer of the Department of Munitions and Supply on recommendation of the administrator of farm and road machinery and municipal service equipment of the wartime prices and trade board. Requests made by the Co-operative Implement company are pro-rated on an equitable basis with all other implement manufacturers and are being produced and delivered.
