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

1. The total quota of hogs granted for domestic consumption is as follows: Halifax, no quotas imposed; Montreal, 6,853 per week; Toronto, 7,217 per week; Winnipeg, 4,963 per week; Regina, 324 per week; Edmonton, 2,827 per week; Vancouver, 3,394 per week.

Note.-These are the numbers that may be slaughtered per week in these cities but it must be remembered an important percentage of the resultant pork is shipped to areas outside of these cities.

2. The general policy followed by the wartime prices and trade board in establishing hog quotas for domestic consumption is to permit an operator to slaughter at the rate of 75 per cent of a basic period.

Exceptions to the general policy have been made in the case of deficiency production areas, and in the case of domestic processors who normally secured their pork by purchase from slaughterers.
