EXPORT RATE ON FLOUR

INQUIRY AS TO MEASURE TO BE MADE EFFECTIVE BY RAILWAYS ON JUNE 6


On the orders of the day:


CON

Gordon Graydon

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. GORDON GRAYDON (Peel):

I should like to make an inquiry of the Minister of Transport (Mr. Howe). Representations have been made to me by certain milling interests in my constituency that on June 6 next the export rate on winter wheat flour is being increased by the Canadian Pacific and Canadian National railways by approximately 6 cents per barrel. They further say that Australian flour is competing very strongly with our product in the West Indies at present and that in the interests of the wheat producing farmers and millers in Ontario no further handicap should be placed upon their efforts to compete successfully in outside markets. Will the minister kindly take

[Mr. Gardiner.l

up with the railways the question raised, with a view to having the export rates remain as they are?

Hon. C. D. HOWE (Minister of Transport) :

I have no knowledge of the proposed increase in rates, but I may say that it is not the function of the minister to take up with the railways matters of rates. I would suggest that whoever made representations to my hon. friend should themselves take up with the railways the matter of export rates.

TRANS-CANADA AIR LINES DELAY IN DELIVERY OF LOCKHEED TRANSPORT PLANES AND QUESTION OF SALES TO JAPAN


On the orders of the day:


CCF

Major James William Coldwell

Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (C.C.F.)

Mr. M. J. COLDWELL (Rosetown-Biggar):

I should like to direct a question to the government, and I am sorry that I was unable to give longer notice of it. Will the government make a statement regarding the alleged delay in the delivery of aeroplanes for the Winnipeg-Toronto-Montreal service on account of the Lockheed Aircraft Corporation of Canada having accepted a contract for the delivery of thirty of their planes to the Japanese government, including several allegedly already commenced for delivery to our service; and will the government assure the house that no licence will be issued for the export of such planes to Japan?

Clarence Decatur Howe (Minister of Transport)

Hon. C. D. HOWE (Minister of Transport) :

In reply to my hon. friend's question may I say that Canada does not manufacture planes of the standard transport type. The order for the requirements of Trans-Canada Air Lines was therefore placed in the United States, with the company that manufactures practically all the requirements in that regard for this continent. Our deliveries have been delayed, as I presume all deliveries have been delayed in connection with planes of this type. I have no knowledge that exports to Japan have anything to do with it. However, if they have, it is a matter between the government of the United States and Japan.
