May 16, 1946 (20th Parliament, 2nd Session)


Mr. McILRAITH: (Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Reconstruction and Supply)


1. 1,639.
2. The priorities division, head office, War Assets Corporation, has filled 103 of these applications in full and 350 in part. In addition, many of these municipalities have had their applications met from branch offices of the corporation across Canada. The branch offices are not required to notify the priorities division of the corporation of these sales. Furthermore, in regard to the sale of certain surplus properties, such as real estate, the appropriate sales division at the Montreal head office of the corporation deals directly with the municipality without notification to the priorities division. It is therefore impossible to give a precise answer to this question.
