Hon. W. D. EULER (Minister of Trade and Commerce):

Mr. Speaker, I had a word this morning with Commissioner Turgeon and it is expected the report on wheat will be ready very soon-long before expiration of the present fixed price for wheat.

With regard to the policy of the government may I say that it will be decided upon and, in due course, declared.

Mr. ANGUS MacINNIS (Vancouver East):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to ask the Minister of Labour (Mr. Rogers) a question. Has the final report of the national employment commission been printed, and if not will it be printed soon?

Hon. NORMAN McL. ROGERS (Minister of Labour): Mr. Speaker, my latest advice is that the report will be available early next week. It contains a rather voluminous appendix, the printing and translation of which have caused delay in making the report available to the house.
