We have not the bill before us and I do not think we should proceed without it.

Mr. MARSH:

This thing has happened not once but several times in Hamilton. In some cases rebates were applied for but were refused. I brought the matter up last year in the debate on the speech from the throne, and on the defence estimates earlier this session, and I bring it up again to-day. It seems to me it is something that could be arranged. A penalty should not be placed on the head of a man who wants to be a good citizen.

Mr. MARSH:

While the time may have come for the establishment of government arsenals-I do not know that it has, but I am ready to take the opinion of those who should know-I do believe that apart from their purpose as pilot plants to guide private industry, sufficient arsenals could not be put on a productive basis in time of emergency for a sum short of $100,000,000. War is always an emergency. Private industry is now equipped to manufacture munitions of all kinds if the proper guidance is given. I agree heartily with the hon. member for Brantford City and the hon. member for Wentworth.

Supply-National Defence

I can name twenty plants which could with very little loss of time be equipped to make munitions of most kinds. I agree with the minister that to put the government arsenals right now on a production basis is impossible with an expenditure of less than seventyTive or a hundred million dollars. We need lathes, shapers, drills, profile machines, precision tools and machines of one kind and another to produce munitions. There is no question that we have these in our plants to-day, and we have Canadian workmen who can operate them. With a proper control of profits, on which I think the mind and will of parliament is now determined, we should not waste too much time discussing government arsenals.
