Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Prime Minister) :

I am sure the house will wish to have as part of the permanent records of its proceedings the historic address which was delivered in this chamber this morning by Madame Chiang Kai-shek. I have spoken to my hon. friend the leader of the opposition (Mr. Graydon), and he has kindly consented to second a motion to this end. I therefore move, seconded by Mr. Graydon:

That the address of Madame Chiang Kai-shek, delivered before the members of the Senate and of the House of Commons of Canada in the chamber of the House of Commons this morning, and the record of the morning's proceedings, be included in the House of Commons Debates and form part of the records of this parliament.

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

Could not the several addresses be included in the record? I think for example the address of the Prime Minister and particularly the addresses of their honours the Speakers of both houses, should be included.

Mr. ABBOTT: (Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Finance)

1. The wartime prices and trade board has gathered information respecting the amount of sugar used by commercial firms since 1941. Prior to that year estimates were made by the Dominion Bureau of Statistics but these

are not on a comparable basis.

(a) (b) (c)Soft Drinks Wine Candyrefined raw refinedsugar sugar sugar(lbs.) (lbs.) (lbs.)1941... 91,724,610 12,962,988 65,489,8361942... 73,075,217 12,077,275 51,222,345

The consumption of sugar by industrial users has been restricted since July 1, 1942, the general quota for manufacturers of soft drinks and candy being not more than 70 per cent of the quantity used in the corresponding quarter of 1941, although this quota is subject to adjustment at the discretion of the administrator in case of hardship. Allocation for wine making is on a somewhat different basis, because usage in this industry relates to the crop year rather than to the calendar year. Of the total of 12,077,275 lbs. of sugar used in 1942 5,368,552 lbs. were used in connection with the final processing of the

1941 grapes. The allocation of sugar for the

1942 crop was based on somewhat less than 70 per cent of the average grape tonnage of the three preceding crops used in the making of wine.

2. No statistics are available respecting the amount of sugar used by housewives for canning purposes during the years 1938-41. During 1942 housewives applied for and received

106,000,000 lbs. for home canning, which, in view of restricted supplies of commercially canned fruits and jams, is probably the largest quantity of sugar ever used for this purpose.

3. (a) 66,000.000 lbs.

(b) 9,100,000 "

(c) 48,000,000 "

4. 100,000,000 lbs.
