Hon. Donald M. Fleming (Minister of Finance):
Mr. Speaker, on January 18, as recorded at page 3455 of Hansard, I reported to the house the submission of a formal note on July 23, 1957, to the United States Department of State concerning the possibility of the imposition of barriers by the United States against importations of lead and zinc from Canada, and I indicated at that time that the consent of the United States administration would be sought to the tabling of the Canadian note and also the United States reply in this house.
That consent has now been obtained, and I should like, Mr. Speaker, to table now the Canadian note, No. 409, dated July 23, to which I have referred, and also a copy of the reply dated August 2 from the United States.
Subtopic: TABLING OF CANADIAN NOTE AND UNITED STATES REPLY
