ROYAL CANADIAN AIR FORCE

MESSAGE FROM THE PRIME MINISTER TO AIR OFFICER IN CHIEF OVERSEAS

LIB

Thomas Alexander Crerar (Minister of Mines and Resources)

Liberal

Hon. T. A. CRERAR (Minister of Mines and Resources):

Mr. Speaker, the Prime Minister (Mr. Mackenzie King) has been unable to come to the house to-day. In his absence I believe hon. members would wish me to read the text of the message which the Prime Minister sent this morning to the Air Officer in Chief, Royal Canadian Air Force overseas: Air Officer in Chief,

R.C.A.F. Overseas,

London.

The growing strength of the Royal Canadian Air Force overseas and the reports of its increasing share in actual combat with the enemy have filled Canada with pride. The hearts of the Canadian people have been particularly stirred by the news of the important and considerable part which Canadian airmen had in the raid on Cologne with its far-reaching effects.

On behalf of the government, I would ask you kindly to convey to the officers and airmen of the Royal Canadian Air Force under your command, and, through the appropriate channels, to the Canadian officers and airmen serving with the Royal Air Force, an expression of the pride of all Canada in their great and growing achievements. Please extend as well our best of wishes for every success in future aerial combat. The Canadian people will ever gratefully remember what the gallant young airmen of Canada are doing to defend the security of

their homeland and to preserve freedom by engaging and occupying the enemy in the skies over Europe, and in other parts of the world.

W. L. Mackenzie King,

Prime Minister.

Mr. ILSLEY:

Yes. I wish to do it in this way, rather than to create a precedent by having the house pass resolutions or motions for the production of treasury board rulings, which are privileged documents.

Mr. ILSLEY : (Minister of Finance and Receiver General)

Liberal

1. Yes.

2. Beginning December 22nd, 1941, and ending April 30th, 1942, a milk subsidy was paid to certain dairy farmers for the purpose of maintaining production of essential supplies during the winter. The subsidy was discontinued on May 1st, because effective on that date the board established a new scale of maximum milk prices and made provision for other adjustments in milk distribution practices, so that adequate prices may be paid to producers to enable them to continue production.
