Mr. Merritt:

I want to ask the minister a question about priorities control. As I understand, priorities are now being exercised only in respect of Central Mortgage and Housing, veterans housing and integrated housing. Last year the minister said that total amounted to only 15 per cent of the housing being built. I want to ask him two questions. First of all, is the minister to administer this priorities control from now on, or is it to be handed over to the minister of reconstruction? Second, what are the government going to do in respect of the priorities order this year? In what way are they going to exercise their right to give priorities for building materials?

Mr. Merritt:

Having said that timber control involves export only, and is administered in the minister's department by the export permits branch, why is it that the timber control order is needed any more? Why is it that the Export and Import Permits Act does not give the minister ample power to assist in these state trading deals?

Mr. Merritt:

Speaking to the point of order, I have in my hand Hansard of last year when this measure was discussed. I find that on March 16, 1948, at page 2256 under the heading "On section 1-Duration of act", each of these orders in council was discussed specifically. At the start of the evening sitting on that day the Chairman himself said:

The committee was considering P.C. 9029, wartime leasehold regulations as amended.

Right through the discussion of last year, on the section dealing with the duration of

Transitional Measures Act the act, the practice was followed of discussing the detail of the specific orders in council.

Mr. Merriti:

Anyone who is building a house at a cost of less than $10,000 can today get a priority for his building material. Is that correct?

I am not talking about general trade problems but rather of particular trade problems.
