Mr. MacKINNON (Edmonton West):

The export of oats and barley did not come under the control of the Canadian wheat board until April 1943 and records of exports since that time have been maintained by the board through the issuance of export permits. The following figures include export permits covering the shipment to countries other than the United States; however, these are comparatively small.

During the period April to July 1943 export permits were issued for a total of 30,806,605 bushels of oats (including processed oats, oat groat products and mixed feed oats), for which a total equalization fee of $1,159,762.76 was collected. Of this quantity export permits were issued for 7,241,509 bushels on which no equalization fee was charged as contracts had been entered into prior to the establishment of equalization funds. The average equalization fee collected during this period on oat permits subject to a fee was 4-92 cents per bushel. For this same period export permits were issued for a total of 28,618,309 bushels of barley (including processed barley, barley malt and pot and pearl barley) for which a total equalization fee of $479,974.32 was collected. The comparative price situation in Canada and the United States did not warrant the assessing of equalization fees on barley until May 28, 1943; therefore, permits were issued for 25,471,055 bushels on which no fee was charged. The average equalization fee collected during this period on barley permits subject to a fee was 15-25 cents per bushel.

Export permits issued and fees collected during the crop year August 1, 1943 to July 31, 1944 are as follows:

Oats (including processed oats, oat groat products and mixed feed oats), permits issued, 69,163,151-08 bushels; equalization fee collected, $23,912,449.29; average per bushel, 34-57 cents.

Barley (including processed barley, barley malt and pot and pearl barley), permits issued, 27,920,010-30 bushels; equalization fee collected, $11,796,937.06; average per bushel, 42-25 cents.

The cost of western Canadian oats and barley to the United States purchaser would be the ceiling price for these grains in store Fort William./Port Arthur, which is 51i cents per bushel for oats and 64f cents per bushel

for barley, plus the equalization fee, plus forwarding costs from Fort William/Port Arthur to destination.

In making reply to this question I would point out that the answer to part 1 is not complete in that it does not contain a break-down of the number of women employed; consequently an erroneous impression would be possible.
