TRADE AGREEMENT BETWEEN UNITED KINGDOM AND AUSTRALIA


On the orders of the day:


LIB

Charles Edward Bothwell

Liberal

Mr. C. E. BOTHWELL (Swift Current):

I wish to direct a question either to the Prime Minister or to the Minister of Trade and Commerce. It is reported that the trade agreement between the United Kingdom and Australia, entered into at the recent Imperial economic conference, does not contain a provision, similar to that of the agreement between Canada and Great Britain, regarding the sale of products such as wheat at world prices. I should like to know whether the government has any knowledge thereof, and whether it is a fact.

Right Hon. R. B. BENNETT (Prime Minister):

If the hon. gentleman will look at the supplementary volume tabled, I think he will find the trade agreement between the United Kingdom and Australia set out at length.

Mr. A. E. MUNN (Vancouver North):

I

wish to ask a question of the Minister of the Interior. I notice by press reports that he has arranged for single unemployed men to be given employment in the parks of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta, May I ask whether he would not include British Columbia in that provision.

WHEAT SHIPMENTS


On the orders of the day:


CON

Felix Patrick Quinn

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. F. P. QUINN (Halifax):

I wish to ask a question of the Minister of Trade and Commerce. In this morning's Ottawa Journal there is a report published by the Winnipeg Free Press, as follows:

Canadian wheat trans-shipped at Buffalo or exported through United States ports will not receive the preference of six cents per bushel

Portsmouth Penitentiary

agreed to at the Ottawa imperial conference, according to unofficial but reliable interpretation of the British Customs Act.

Can the minister confirm this report?

Henry Herbert Stevens (Minister of Trade and Commerce)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Hon. H. H. STEVENS (Minister of Trade and Commerce):

Obviously it is impossible for one to confirm an action of the British government. If the hon. member will let the question stand, when the proper time comes for the disclosing of any understanding between the two governments, this will be done.

QUESTION OF PRIVILEGE


On the orders of the day:


CON

Samuel Gobeil

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. SAMUEL GOBEIL (Compton) (Translation) :

Mr. Speaker, 1 wish to draw the attention of the house to a statement of an Ottawa newspaper with reference to comments I made in the house, last Thursday.

The statement is absolutely contrary to truth. The " Droit " of Ottawa states that I mentioned that the fanners of my constituency obtain, ait present, for their butter a higher price than they obtained two years ago ; when I actually stated that the prices obtained for butter, today, by farmers, were higher than the prices obtained in other countries of the world.

As to the statement I made with reference to the speech of the hon. member for Quebec East (Mr. Lapointe), the same newspaper states that I mentioned that the hon. member for Quebec East insulted the women of the province of Quebec by contending that they vote exclusively for Liberal members. The following, sir, is what I actually said, as it appeal's, at page 418 of Hansard:

The French women in my province vote Liberal because they love somebody and vote Conservative because they hate somebody.
