REQUEST FOR EXTENSION OF OLD QUOTA


On the orders of the day:


PC

John George Diefenbaker

Progressive Conservative

Mr. J. G. Diefenbaker (Prince Albert):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to direct a question to the Minister of Trade and Commerce. In view of the fact that many wheat farmers in the prairie provinces have not been able to market the amount of the quota as fixed for their respective marketing points, would the minister consider extending the period in those areas so that farmers might be able to continue marketing at least until the new crop in their areas becomes available for marketing?

Mr. Howe (Port Arthur):

-at the last sitting. The matter has been given very careful consideration and it has been decided- and I may say that the decision is unanimous from all my advisers-that there be no extension of the old quotas this year. Last year the old quotas were extended and shipments under old quotas were being made until December. As a matter of fact, many of the low quota points at the end of the last crop year were points where shipments had been made on extended quotas earlier in the year. The fact remains that we have shipped from the country considerably more grain this year than last year; and whereas last year we filled the eight-bushel quota with the help of the extension, this year we have failed to reach the eight-bushel quota at many points. It will be very much fairer, we feel, to start everyone even as of this day and work out the quotas accordingly as time passes. I think that perhaps answers the question.

INQUIRY AS TO DISCRIMINATION AGAINST LOW DELIVERY POINTS


On the orders of the day:


CCF

Hazen Robert Argue

Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (C.C.F.)

Mr. H. R. Argue (Assiniboia):

I wonder if the minister could say why, as a means of removing the discrimination that exists against producers at many marketing points who have not been able to deliver the eight-bushel quota, all shipping orders have been kept in force at the low delivery point and grain delivered against those orders is not credited on last year's quota instead of the new quota?

Clarence Decatur Howe (Minister of Defence Production; Minister of Trade and Commerce)

Liberal

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

As my hon. friend knows, there are shipping orders out at every point in quantity which would bring that point up to the eight-bushel quota. The purpose of leaving the shipping orders outstanding is the wish to make sure those points that did not market their eight bushels last year will have the first chance to deliver grain this year. Our intention is to remove grain from those particular elevators, in an effort to make sure that those particular points do deliver their eight-bushel quotas this year.
