In the machine shop to which the hon. member for Lincoln (Mr. Chaplin) referred 25 per cent of the business is of a special nature. That machine shop is as well equipped as any machine shop in America. It may be however that these machines are standard in the United States, and for that reason they are willing to pay the 20 per cent duty.
