Motion agreed to.


EMPIRE TRADE


Right Hon. L. S. ST. LAURENT (Minister of Justice): May I be permitted to answer a question submitted yesterday by the hon. member for Vancouver South (Mr. Green). The question was as follows: I should like to direct a question to the Minister of Trade and Commerce. A Canadian Press dispatch published this morning indicates that a conference may be held this fall to consider the whole question of empire trade preferences. Will the minister make a statement in that regard? The answer is as follows: There have been no arrangements made for a commonwealth conference on empire trade preferences this fall. The conference scheduled for this fall is that to which the Prime Minister made reference in his answer on July 5, which is to be found at page 3205 of Hansard of that day, to the question addressed by the hon. member for Peel (Mr. Graydon), namely, a preparatory committee meeting of the economic and social council in London on October 15, the purpose of which is to explore the general principles of the proposals for the expansion of world trade and employment put forward by the United States. It is expected that negotiations on tariffs and preferences will be held in 1947 and that these will include commonwealth discussions on preferences.


PC

Karl Kenneth Homuth

Progressive Conservative

Mr. HOMUTH:

May I ask a supplenientary question? In view of the fact that the United States loan to Britain has been approved by congress, with certain considerations attached respecting tariffs-between Britain and other countries, have they any effect at all on the tariff situation between Canada, Britain and the United States?

Ontario Wheat Policy

Mr. ST. LAURENT: The matters of tariff arrangements and preferences are scheduled for discussion at the conference which was originally called by the United States government and which has now been taken under the aegis of the economic and social council of the united nations.

REVISION OP SCHEDULE OF PRICES AND GRADING On the orders of the day:

Mr. MARK C. SENN (Haldimand): Mr. Speaker, I should like to direct a question to the Minister of Finance, under whose department the wartime prices and trade board operates. The daily newspapers of yesterday carried an announcement that a revision of the schedule of beef prices and grading allows an increase in the wholesale ceiling prices on red and blue brand beef, effective July .22. Has any provision been made to allow those with slaughter permits where no official grading is possible to enjoy these increases in price? This is urgent, Mr. Speaker, because the changes go into effect on Monday next.
