Right Hon. C. D. Howe (Minister of Trade and Commerce):

We have filed several protests over the last 12 months on the subject to which my hon. friend refers, Mr. Speaker, but whether any recent protest has been filed is a question that might properly be addressed to the Department of External Affairs.

Mr. Hees:

I should like to direct a question to the Secretary of State for External Affairs, following upon the reply by the Minister of Trade and Commerce. Has the Department of External Affairs protested to the United States government on the possible restriction of the importation into the United States of Canadian zinc and lead?

Hon. L. B. Pearson (Secreiary of State for External Affairs):

I would have to look into that matter. It is almost as difficult for us to keep track of these protests as it is to keep track of the questions concerning them from hon. gentlemen opposite.
