Mr. JOHN BRACKEN (Leader of the Opposition):
Mr. Speaker, I should like to ask a question of the Minister of Finance TMr. Graydon.]
with reference to trade, and I ask it only because of the discussions in and outside the house. In the press of today there appears a report that Britain will be able to supply about one hundred manufactured articles, ranging from films to capital goods, in quantity to the export market in 1948; and further it is understood that the list has been sent to the British delegation at Ottawa, which is seeking a readjustment of trade with Canada. My question is this: Since Canada's embargo now applies against many of these goods, have the British made any representations to Canada with respect to removing the embargoes against them? If so, will the government lay on the table the substance of the representations made?
