BACON EXPORTS


On the orders of the day:


CON

Robert James Manion (Minister of Railways and Canals)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Hon. R. J. MANION (Minister of Railways and Canals):

In the absence of the Minister of Trade and Commerce (Mr. Stevens) I wish to make a correction in regard to a statement that was given out by one of the officers of the Department of Trade and Commerce yesterday and that appeared in some newspapers this morning, dealing with Canadian bacon exports. I am informed by Mr. Coats, the dominion statistician, that there are various mistakes in this statement, largely due to the changing of a decimal point which naturally multiplies some of the figures by ten. I wish to make this correction as early as possible, and this afternoon Mr. Coates will give out to the press a corrected statement in regard to exports of bacon from Canada.

LOBSTER FISHING SEASON


On the orders of the day:


LIB

Alfred Edgar MacLean

Liberal

Mr. A. E. MacLEAN (Prince):

I should like to direct a question to the Acting Minister of Fisheries (Mr. Duranleau), based on the following telegram from Summerside, dated May 2:

Understand Department of Fisheries granting two weeks extension to lobster fishermen on south shore Nova Scotia. Feel this action very unfair to fishermen and packers island. South shore enjoyed last winter a season from December first to January fifteenth and this spring March first May fifteenth. Our fishermen have only two months. Market in a demoralized condition. Such extension if granted will be disastrous to our fishermen. Would suggest protest strongly against such extension.

This is signed by one of the large packers of Prince Edward Island. The question I wish to direct to the minister is whether he will give consideration to the request of the Island packers in regard to not granting this extension of time.

Hon. J. L. RALSTON (Shelburne-Yar-mouth):

I would like to ask the minister if he would be good enough to take into immediate consideration-and I say immediate because the matter is urgent-the request of the fishermen of western Nova Scotia for the extension of the lobster season to the end of May. The minister has said he is willing to consider any reasonable demands made by the packers of Prince Edward Island, and I nope he will have the same consideration for the request of the fishermen of western Nova Scotia.
