asked the President of the Board of Trade when he expects that manilla rope will be available for the production of salmon nets; and why it is not obtainable at the present time.

I understand that manilla is not normally used for the manufacture of salmon nets, though before the war it was to a small extent used in the manufacture of hauling ropes for salmon seine fishing. It is not practicable to relax the present limitation on the use of manilla to purposes for which suitable substitutes from non-dollar sources are not available.
