As a result of communications I have just received from the coast, I desire to ask the government if they will correct something which was done last year and which is mentioned in the Duncan report. When the surplus fruit from the United States was dumped into British Columbia and the prairie provinces, the anti-dumping duty was levied, but was promptly refunded, so that the effect of the anti-dumping clause was negatived. The fruit season is approaching, and it is important to know whether the government's policy in the future -will permit such a thing, or whether they will correct this matter and stop the refunding process.
Hon. P. J. A. CARDIN (Minister of Marine and Fisheries):
No definite stand has been
taken in this matter and no definite request has been made to the department at the present time. I will be pleased indeed to look into the matter, as suggested to my hon. friend, and will be in a position in a day or two to give a definite answer.
