I should like to direct a question to the Minister of Finance. Does he intend to remedy the discrepancy which now exists in Canada between production and purchasing power?

Hon. Mr. Lapointe:

I see your point: but you will recall that at one of the previous meetings it was stated that we were proceeding at the present time to do some cost ascertainment and that we expected a report on that would be ready by September. I think that the figures would be available at that time and we would probably be able to give them to you, but at the present time we have not got them.
