Thomas Alfred Thompson

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. THOMPSON:

The British Board of

Trade-I stand corrected. In the appendix to votes and proceedings is a letter from Sir Thomas Inskip, Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs, to the Hon. Vincent Massey, High Commissioner for Canada in London, in which he states:

If any other suggestions could be put forward which would not have the same difficulties from our point of view, we should, of course, be very ready to consider them.

Has the government any suggestions to make in the interests of the dairying and live stock industries of this country?

Hon. CHARLES A. DUNNING (Minister of Finance): As I indicated yesterday,

I anticipated that there would be a desire to discuss on some occasion-probably when the house is resolving itself into committee of supply, or on some appropriate item-the correspondence which I tabled and which is incorporated in the votes and proceedings of May 23. Of course, the measure of hope held out in the last paragraph of Sir Thomas Inskip's letter is one of the possibilities which we have not yet had an opportunity thoroughly to explore. The tariff board report on the matter, which resulted in the recommendation which has been declined, is quite voluminous, and it may be that a study of it will reveal some alternative possibility. I cannot see it at the moment. But I would point out to my hon. friend that the existing trade agreement with Great Britain comes up for reconsideration in 1940. That at any rate will offer opportunity for broad negotiations on any of these matters. I cannot, I think, go any further at the moment.

On the orders of the day:


CON

Gordon Graydon

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. GORDON GRAYDON (Peel):

Before the orders of the day are called, I should like to make an inquiry of the acting leader of the government, supplementing a question raised by the hon. member for Wentworth (Mr. Lennard) on February 10. In view of the signal service being rendered during the royal stay by the militia, ex-service men and 71492-2814

others in forming guards of honour, protecting strategic points and performing many other important services, wrill the government consider the striking of a special royal visit medal for issuance to those who have thus played their part in this historic event?
