Miss Sybil Bennett (Halton):

Mr. Speaker, may I have just a few minutes of the time of the house to thank the Prime Minister for his most kind and gracious words. It is a very warm welcome that is given me today, and I am most happy to be back. I want to say, Mr. Speaker, that if it had not been for the indulgence and kindness of my own constituents, the very many messages of good cheer and encouragement that I received from both sides of the house, and the faith and prayers of those around me, I fear I would not be back today. I am very happy to be with you.

John Whitney Pickersgill (Minister of Citizenship and Immigration)

Liberal

Mr. Pickersgill:

No, Mr. Speaker. I do not believe it would be of any advantage to anyone if I did so. I think the language of the regulations is clear. As a layman I would hesitate to interpret them to my learned colleague.

STATEMENT ON ADMISSION OF EXPERIENCED TOBACCO WORKERS FROM U.S.


On the orders of the day:


LIB

Milton Fowler Gregg (Minister of Labour)

Liberal

Hon. Milton F. Gregg (Minister of Labour):

Mr. Speaker, perhaps I can comment on the question which was asked of the Minister of Citizenship and Immigration last Friday by the hon. member for Brant-Haldimand, and on which I have had correspondence with the hon. member for Essex South (Mr. Clark) and others, as to the entry of primers and tyers for the tobacco crop this summer.

I have had correspondence with, and a copy of a resolution from, the secretary of the flue-cured tobacco marketing association of Ontario. If I were to quote one paragraph of my reply to the secretary perhaps it would answer the question:

In view of the representations you and others have made we can assure you that should the necessity arise for bringing in more primers and tyers than can be provided in Canada, we will attempt to fill the need from the United States.
