DISTRIBUTION OF FREE BUTTER

PRESS REPORT AS TO DISTRIBUTION TO FAMILIES IN NEED OR ON RELIEF


On the orders of the day:


SC

Robert Fair

Social Credit

Mr. ROBERT FAIR (Battle River):

I should like to direct a question to the Minister of Agriculture (Mr. Gardiner) or the Minister of Labour (Mr. Rogers) based upon a news item which appeared in this morning's Citizen, as follows:

Regina, April 18.-Thousands of pounds of butter, part of the huge surplus of 6,000,000 pounds in Canada, are expected to go out shortly to relief families and needy families not on relief.

Distribution of surplus butter in Saskatchewan is part of the scheme of the federal government, announced early in April by J. F. Singleton, ^ federal dairy commissioner at Ottawa. The dominion government is financing distribution.

I should like to ask whether any of this butter is to be distributed to relief recipients and people in need in other provinces; and, if so, in what quantities in each province.

Hon. J. G. GARDINER (Minister of Agriculture):

This question was up, I think, on two previous occasions, as to whether any such distribution was to be proceeded with. Arrangements have been entered into with the Red Cross to take charge of any distribution that may be made, and any such distribution will be made right across Canada.
