asked the Minister of Public Building and Works whether, in connection with the arrangements which he has made to demonstrate Canadian techniques and standards in the construction of limber houses, he will ensure that in all such demonstrations information is provided as to whether commercial considerations relating to balance of trade will or will not permit any more timber to be imported into this country in large quantities to construct such houses; and what materials other than timber can be used in connection with such techniques for house building.
§ Mr. Rippon
No. We are demonstrating the possibilities of a particular method of construction using materials which can be obtained on a commercial basis. This will enable those who are interested to make their own judgment and comparisons.
