It was told, too, that a cross- country examination had found "extensive preparations for expan- sion of production" outstripping that of any period prior to the war. The statements came from faro of the Canadian National Railways. J. S.

But we must recognize thai for the immediate future there are certain definitely limiting factors. There will only be a limited amount of available shipping space crsn in 1947. In some countries there exist various regulations regard to exit permits and to the export of capital. To these should be added the present-day cost of moving im- migrants and the increasing amounts of capital necessary to effect successful settlement." Looking over various countries, lie said there were "many people in the British Isles eesirous ol com- ing to Canada." Many Norwegians and Danes had ber of applicants." The same situ- ation pertained in Belgium, and France.
