Mr. Jean Francois Poulioi (Temiscouala):

Mr. Speaker, I have learned with great regret that there is another disaster in eastern Canada. Fire is raging at the present time at the village of Cabano in my constituency. The Red Cross is sending supplies to help the people, and I ask the government to do all they can to send help to stop the fire and assist those who are victims of it. I hope something will be done at once for these people. I extend to them my sympathy, and express the hope that the fire will soon be under control.

FISHERIES

NEWFOUNDLAND SALT CODFISH


On the orders of the day:


PC

Gordon Francis Higgins

Progressive Conservative

Mr. G. F. Higgins (St. John's East):

I wish to direct a question to the parliamentary assistant to the Minister of Fisheries. What action does the government propose to take

Inquiries of the Ministry with respect to the setting of a guaranteed price to fishermen for Newfoundland salt codfish for 1950?

John Watson MacNaught (Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Fisheries)

Liberal

Mr. J. W. MacNaughl (Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Fisheries):

The

hon. member for St. John's East was kind enough to telephone me and to send me a copy of his question. In reply thereto I wish to say that the world prices of salted codfish have remained through 1949 above wartime levels, while the prices of other primary products have had some downward adjustment. The world supply of salt codfish is still below the pre-war normal, and the people in the consuming countries are anxious to have this kind of diet. The going prices for 1950 will be determined by the output in other producing countries, such as Norway and Iceland, as well as Canada, and by the demand situation overseas during the year.

The fisheries prices support board has had and will continue to have this situation, as it may affect the Canadian salt fish trade, under the closest review. In the light of unfolding conditions and any needs that may later arise, the board will recommend to the government the course of action it believes the situation then calls for.
