Baliantyne said here that the $">,-C.00,000 mill at Sydney, now under construction for "the manufacture of 250.000 tons of ship" plates, would, he expected, be completed and rolling ahip steel by next July. Canada's annual output of steel shins was 250.000 tons and the government had under construction 22 steel ships, aggregating in cost $25,000,000, while the number of ships under construction next year'would be considerably larger and would cost approximately $3!>,000,000. Sixes would range from 10,500 tons. 8,100 -tons, 4,350 tons to 3,750 tons deadweight and these sbi|js would be owned and operated 'by the Canadian government. There would be ready for sea this fall two ships 'and possibly four of 8,100 and 4,350 tons. The policy of the government, he said, was confined to steel ships only, though contracts for approximately 100 wooden ships from 2,500 to 3,000 tons had been awarded up to the present time. He.regrettcd that it was not possible for the .government to grant permission to construct ships for allied or neutral registry, owing to the difficulty that is being experienced in securing; the necessary quantity of I ship plates 'required under their own j program.
