Mr. MacKINNON (Edmonton West):

Before submitting the answer to this question, and also to the questions relating to imports of com and imports of raw sugar, I wish to make a brief statement.

It has been decided as a matter of policy that the bureau of statistics will give no detailed information as to the countries of origin of imports for the duration of the war. It is felt that this information might be of value to the enemy in acquainting them with the sources of supply of certain materials. This decision is wholly in accord with the present practice of the United Kingdom.

If any individual hon. member wishes this information for his own private and confidential use we shall be glad to furnish it to him.

The answer to the question is as follows:

Imports, by countries, of canned beef entered for consumption in Canada during the calendar years 1938 and 1939 and 1940 (fiscal years not available).
