A few sentences from'that announcement are worth recalling now: With hostilities over, the em- phasis is on the re-estab- lishment, at the earliest feasi- ble time, of a relatively free price ana wage system. To provide jobs, there must be an incentive to permit business, large or small, to take the risks involved in expanding oper- ations and in entering on new lines of activity. The ad- ministration of price control must necessarily be more flexible than if -was ia war- time. Psora, the beginning of reconversion, the govern- ment has been determined that price control should not be al- lowed to restrict the expansion of peacetime production. The government's policy is to reduce and remove subsidies as promptly as is feasible. Wage aad salary controls are an essential feature of the stabilisation program. Infla- tionary pressures are such that removal of wage control 5s not yet feasible. The government, however, ha.y no intention of interfering with the normal processes of collective bargain- ing to any greater extent or for any longer than w strictly necessary.

The majority of these are" happy with the way things have turned, out. Many reports that they are being treated by their employers much better than they had expect- ed to be. Most of the rest, while a little disappointed, feel that they have receivea everytning they really had a right to expect. Although about 50 per cent of the veterans are having housing diffi- culties the majority of this half realize that the situation that ex- ists today is nation-wide and hurts civilians-as well as returned men. And while some report haviag to pay exorbitant, rents, and some have oeen stuck baoly whey buying homes, Mr. Thatcher said -Canada had gained by-similar programs In the pass.'
