Mr. J. G. Lind (Middlesex):

My question is directed to the Minister of Consumer and Corporate Affairs. Is he aware of the situation that is developing in the plywood industry which will have the consequence of inflating the cost of shelter or housing across Canada, since manufacturers of fir plywood are increasing their prices by 5 to 10 per cent on sheathing and finished grades of plywood? Will the minister have his department investigate this exorbitant increase?
