Hon. Paul Hellyer (Minister of Transport):

This matter is under most active consideration, Mr. Speaker. It is important, and we are searching for better methods of providing excellent service to my friend and our many other friends on the prairie provinces. We think this can be achieved.

Mr. Dinsdale:

May I ask a supplementary question. Can the minister indicate the reason for the delay in implementing this policy which, as he has just indicated, is very important?

Mr. Speaker, I have a question for the Minister of Forestry and Rural Development. Can the minister now answer the question I asked him on February 15 relating to the vocational training school program for the interlake area of Manitoba outlined in the ARDA-FRED agreement? Can he give assurance now that there will be no cut-back in this program?

REQUEST FOR FIXED DATES FOR FINAL PAYMENTS


On the orders of the day:


PC

Siegfried John Enns

Progressive Conservative

Mr. S. J. Enns (Porlage-Neepawa):

My

question is for the Minister of Trade and Commerce and relates to the wheat board. In view of the increasing expectation that farmers will operate on a businesslike basis, and in view of the fact that payment dates vary from year to year, will the minister consider recommending to the wheat board that fixed dates be set upon which the final payments may be made year after year?

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

I will be glad to communicate with the wheat board. This suggestion would be very difficult to implement though because the final date depends on the size of the crop and the ability of the board to sell it. We are trying to expedite the payments; we are doing everything possible to get cheques out as quickly as the wheat board can.

May I ask a supplementary question. Is the Canadian Wheat Board closing its books today in so far as the 1966-67 wheat pool is concerned, as previously announced, or is the board asking for additional time as a result of the government's action on Monday?
