Mr. Watson (Assiniboia):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to rephrase my question to the Minister of Trade and Commerce and ask him what steps the government is taking to make sure that the I.G.A. will be implemented, and that wheat will sell within the agreed price range.

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

We have had a considerable number of meetings with our colleagues in the exporting countries, and recently we had one in Washington which was quite productive. There have been discussions, and understandings were reached. These understandings will be communicated later this month to other wheat importing and exporting countries which are signatories of the international grains agreement and discussed with them. Until this discussion takes place it would not be appropriate in the present context to reveal the nature of these understandings.

However, I may say in general that good progress has been made at this meeting in working out the steps necessary for implementing the price range of the new international grains agreement which is scheduled to come into effect on July 1.

Inquiries of the Ministry received a report that morning but since he was at a cabinet meeting he had not had time to review it. Perhaps he has been at a continuous cabinet meeting since, but I wonder whether the minister has had a chance to see it since then.
