REPORTED SALE TO COUNTRIES BEHIND IRON CURTAIN


On the orders of the day:


PC

George Alexander Drew (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Progressive Conservative

Hon. George A. Drew (Leader of the Opposition):

I wish to direct a question to the Prime Minister. Will the government reconsider its decision to supply butter to a communist government and consider the advisability of using such surplus butter as must be disposed of outside of Canada in this way as a supplementary contribution to the Colombo plan?

Right Kon. L. S. St. Laurent (Prime Minister): I am not prepared to say, Mr. Speaker, that the government will reconsider. This butter is being sold at a price to be adjusted in accordance with the world price of butter, and if it can be disposed of at the world price for butter on the world market, it is the present intention of the government to so dispose of it.
