Mr. Roland Godin (Portneuf):

Mr. Speaker,

I should like to direct a question to the right hon. Prime Minister. Could he tell us whether he intends to ask His Excellency the Governor General to sign as soon as possible honour certificates for Canadians who are 100 years old, whose names have been added recently to the incomplete list held by the centennial commission?

Hon. Alvin Hamilton (Qu'Appelle):

Mr. Speaker, my question is addressed to the Minister of Trade and Commerce. In view of the minister's announcement this morning concerning the granting of most favoured nation treatment to Bulgaria, will the minister inform the house how many communist nations still do not have most favoured nation treatment and whether negotiations are being carried on with these nations on this matter?

REPORTED INTENTION TO REDUCE SHIPMENTS THROUGH CHURCHILL


On the orders of the day:


PC

Robert Simpson

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Robert Simpson (Churchill):

Mr. Speaker, yesterday I asked a question of the Minister of Trade and Commerce through his parliamentary secretary in relation to reports that shipments of grain through the port of Churchill possibly would be decreased this year, and asked the minister or his parliamentary secretary to give the reason for this. I wonder whether the minister has this information now.

Hon. Robert Winters (Minister of Trade and Commerce):

Mr. Speaker, I do not think I can give the reason for something which I do not believe will take place. The Canadian Wheat Board at present are negotiating shipments of wheat from Churchill for this season. They are doing everything they can to encourage a high level of shipments, and we believe there again will be a good level of exports through the port of Churchill this year.

I should like to ask a supplementary question, Mr. Speaker. In a recent letter from the chairman of the National Harbours Board it was stated to me that shipments of grain through Churchill this year are not expected to exceed the level of
