RA

Gilles Grégoire

Ralliement Créditiste

Mr. Gilles Gregoire (Lapointe):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to direct a question to the Minister of Labour, but in his absence I shall put it to the right hon. Prime Minister.

Could he tell us why the federal government turns down winter works extension projects in municipalities of the province of Quebec when such projects have been accepted by the provincial authorities under the joint winter works program?

AGRICULTURE


On the orders of the day:


PC

Percy Verner Noble

Progressive Conservative

Mr. P. V. Noble (Grey North):

I should like to address this question to the Minister of Agriculture, but in his absence perhaps the Parliamentary Secretary could take it. Will the Minister use his influence to have the Owen Sound fall fair, now a "B" status fair, raised to the "A" rating for which it fully qualifies?

Maurice Bourget (Speaker of the Senate)

Order, it seems to me that this being a serious question, the reply should be given through the Order Paper.

Liberal

Mr. B. S. Beer (Parliamentary Secretary to Minister of Agriculture):

I wish to thank the hon. Member for giving me notice of his question. I have checked with the departmental officials and am advised that the total amount of eligible prize money paid out by the Owen Sound Agricultural Society in each of the last three years on the specified classes was not sufficient to qualify this exhibition

May 5, 1965

Inquiries of the Ministry for class "A" listing. Under the regulations a fair must have paid out prize money on specified classes of not less than $6,000 in each of the three preceding years to become eligible for class "A" listing.

I am pleased to note that the prize money paid out by the Owen Sound Agricultural Society on the specified classes is increasing annually and I would hope that they will be soon in a position to qualify for class "A" listing.
