PRIVILEGE

MR. PINARD-AMENDMENT TO MOTION FOR ADDRESS IN REPLY-DIVISION LIST

LIB

Roch Pinard

Liberal

Mr. ROCH PINARD (Chambly-Rouville):

I rise to a question of personal privilege. As a matter of fact, sir, I consider it the most precious privilege any hon. member can have, the right of exercising his vote in the house. Although I voted yesterday afternoon against the amendment proposed by the leader of the official opposition (Mr. Bracken) my name is not recorded in the report which may be found at page 1315 of Hansard. I should like this omission to be corrected.

CANNED AND SALTED-DISCONTINUANCE OF INTERNATIONAL ALLOCATION

LIB

Hedley Francis Gregory Bridges (Minister of Fisheries)

Liberal

Hon. H. F. G. BRIDGES (Minister of Fisheries):

Mr. Speaker, I wish to announce that after March 31. 1947, no Canadian canned fish will be subject to international allocation. Similarly, allocation of salted cod and other salted groundfish of 1946 production will come to an end on June 30 of this year, and there will be no allocation of salted fish from 1947 production. Examination of the world situation by the international food emergency council at Washington this week has shown the world supply is coming into approximate balance with effective demand, when all fish products are taken into consideration; hence this decision has been made to discontinue the allocation schemes relating to canned and salted fish.

Most Canadian canned fish has been subject to international allocation since the mid-war years. Chief among the products concerned have been canned salmon and canned herring, but the list has also included such others as canned sardines, mackerel, groundfish and pilchards. All of them will come out from under this control at the close of the present month.
