Mr. J. A. FRASER (Cariboo):
I wish to ask the Prime Minister a question based on his statement as reported in Hansard, page 3054, that as soon as applications were received invoking the statute, an order in council under section 43 of the Customs Act would be passed authorizing the minister to fix values on produce of a class or kind produced in Canada, and on the fact that the Minister of Agriculture has acknowledged the receipt of three telegrams from the strawberry growers of three different districts in British Columbia invoking the statute and asking for the fixing of values on strawberries from May 21 to July 10. The questions are:
1. Has an order in council been passed?
2. If not, when does he propose to have the applications referred to, considered by the governor in council?
