Mr. HOWE:

I believe there are only three or four projects with full basements, of which three are in the city of Toronto and one in the city of Ottawa. The basement adds $7 a month to the rent, and there are not many cities that want to pay the extra cost. Wartime Housing Limited is just as willing to build a basement under a house as not, provided that it can get a return on the investment.
