Marcel Joseph Aimé Lambert (Speaker of the House of Commons)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Speaker:

In so far as putting the "agreed" is concerned may I say that I was anticipating an indication one way or another if there should be dissent or consent. There seemed to be no dissent.

PC

Hugh John Flemming (Minister of National Revenue; Minister of Forestry)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Flemming (Victoria-Carleton):

1. (a)

Frozen red pitted cherries; (b) Fresh prune plums; (c) Fresh potatoes.

2. (a) Request received May 1, 1962-not implemented; (b) Request received September 11, 1962-not implemented; (c) Request received September 11, 1962-implemented

October 16, 1962.

3 and 4. Answered by 2.

5. (a) Low prices tor frozen red pitted cherries prevailing in the country of export. As substantial stocks were on hand, due to the considerable carryover from the 1961 Canadian crop, importations in large quantities would cause serious consequences to the Canadian industry.

(b) Low prices of fresh prune plums in the U.S.A. Heavy imports would cause hardship to the B.C. fruit growers.

(c) Low prices of imported potatoes constituted threat to Canadian growers.

6. (a) and (b). Frozen red pitted cherries and fresh prune plums-following investigation it was determined that the circumstances did not warrant implementation of fixed values.

(c) Fresh potatoes-delayed only for the period required for investigation to determine whether the request warranted action.
