§ 81. Sir Percy Hurd
asked the Minister of Supply whether he is aware that Canadian mine producers are passing on the advantages of their low cost of production to the British Government for war purposes by furnishing the largest part of their output at prices prevailing prior to the war, and that, according to the Canadian Deputy Minister of Mines, the British Government will pay from $75,000,000 to $90,000,000 less than for similar purchases in 1918; and what steps he is taking to show appreciation of this action?
§ The Minister of Supply (Mr. Burgin)
His Majesty's Government are glad to have this opportunity once again to express their appreciation of the helpful attitude of Canadian and other Empire producers of non-ferrous metals.
