Mr. Speaker, before the orders of the day, I should like to direct a question to the Minister of Agriculture of which I have not sent him notice.

DECLINE IN EXPORTS OF TOBACCO TO HOLLAND


On the orders of the day:


LIB

John Horace Dickey (Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Defence Production)

Liberal

Mr. J. H. Dickey (Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Defence Production):

Mr. Speaker, on Friday last the hon. member for Oxford (Mr. Nesbitt) asked the Minister of Trade and Commerce (Mr. Howe) a question in connection with the decline of exports of Canadian tobacco to Holland. His question 83276-383J

Wheat-Marketing of Surplus may be found at page 5829 of Hansard for Friday, June 11. Inquiries have been made in this respect and I can now inform the house that the decline in Canadian exports of tobacco to The Netherlands can be attributed to the fact that our sales in that market in recent years have been made up of lower grades of tobacco. As a result of favourable growing and marketing conditions in Canada we have not had as much of these grades of tobacco for export during the last two or three years.
