Mr. MACKENZIE:

There will be certain surgical facilities available in the unit now,
but the hospital will not be completed for some months yet because of difficulties in regard to labour, bricklayers particularly, and the shortage of supplies and material, all of .which were beyond my control. But I can assure my hon. friend that it is the earnest and urgent desire of this department to have Sunnybrook finished as soon as possible, and I hope that every single member of parliament will attend the opening ceremonies.
