Mr. MACKENZIE KING:

My hon. friend has asked a question which I think might best be replied to by my colleague the Secretary! of State for External Affairs (Mr. St. Laurent). May I say to him that all international questions of the kind he has referred to and which relate to present conditions are receiving consideration.

Mr. WILLIAM BRYCE (Selkirk):

I should like to ask a question of the Minister of Fisheries, following the statement he has just made. Has he taken into consideration the fisheries in the prairie provinces, such as those on lake Winnipeg? Are they to participate in this arrangement?

Mr. BRIDGES1: I am sure that if the hon. member will read my statement which I made this afternoon he will see that we have taken into consideration the fishermen of the prairie provinces.

Mr. H. W. HERRIDGE (Kootenay West):

Mr. Speaker, in view of the statement made by the Prime Minister and by the Minister of Fisheries, and of the stated inability of the British government to purchase Canadian apples because of a shortage of dollars, and of the situation facing the tree fruits industry, I should like to ask a question based upon letters and telegrams I have received from the Associated Growers of British Columbia. Will the government consider making arrangements for the shipment of apples to Great Britain this year similar to those that are being made with regard to the shipment of food as mentioned this afternoon?

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

As hon. members are

aware, the leaders of the different parties opposite and myself met together a week or two ago to arrange a programme which would expedite the business of the session. We have been carrying on under that arrangement. As I recall, there was nothing said specifically at that conference with regard to July 1. Having regard to the remarkable progress that has been made since that arrangement was made, the government is of the view that it would be wise for us to continue sitting regularly throughout next week. If we were to adjourn over Tuesday, which is July 1, we would be breaking into the arrangement for the week. May I say that I think the Canadian people will feel, as the government does, that there is no way

United, Nations

in which we can better show the pride we have in our country and the concern we have for its affairs than to dispatch its business with the greatest solicitude possible.
