Hon. Paul Mariin (Minister of National Health and Welfare):

When this measure is discussed in the house the hon. member will have a detailed reply to his question. But let me tell him, since he has asked the question, that our income ceiling, in terms of what the pensioner may have in addition to the basic pension, is a more generous allowance than that made by any other country in the world. When the hon. member puts his question in the form in which he does, he seeks to leave the impression that such is not the case.

Mr. Knowles:

I am not debating the matter. I am merely asking the minister whether the present other income allowed will be retained after this measure passes.

The hon. member knows perfectly well that the time to ask that question is when the measure is under discussion.

Mr. J. W. Burion (Humboldt):

I should like to ask a question of the Minister of Trade and Commerce. At what prices do Canadian millers obtain wheat from the wheat board for (a) domestic consumption, and (b) export?

Right Hon. C. D. Howe (Minister of Trade

and Commerce): The millers obtain wheat for export to the United Kingdom at the United Kingdom price, and also they obtain wheat for domestic flour. For all other sales they pay the class II price for wheat.

Hon. Lionel Chevrier (Minister of Transport):

I have not seen any announcement of the increases in freight rates which my hon. friend says have been announced by the Canadian Freight Association. I was under the impression that increases in freight rates are decided by the board of transport commissioners, or by the railways themselves under the terms of the Railway Act, to meet water and highway competition. The hon. member for Humboldt (Mr. Burton) asked a similar question yesterday, and I suggested if he would give me the detailed information I should be glad to look into it. I make the same suggestion to my hon. friend.
