Hon. Mitchell Sharp (Secretary of Slate for External Affairs):

Mr. Speaker, I shall answer the second question first. I have had no representations and as far as I know the government of the United States has made no representations to the Canadian government along these lines. Indeed, I doubt they would consider a form of protest such as the right hon. gentleman thinks they ought to make. I do not think we are sacrificing any people. Our objective is one which should be the wish of all members of this house and all people-to recognize the 700 million people who are not represented here.

Inquiries of the Ministry

On the first question, I think I have reported to the house that we had substantive discussions and expect to have further discussions very soon.

Mr. Diefenbaker:

If I may ask a supplementary question, I should like to know when the minister changed his mind in respect of the statement he made throughout and prior to the election campaign that if the government of the Republic of China in Taiwan would in any way suffer potential danger recognition would not be proceeded with and that communist China would be so advised?

Mr. Speaker:

Order, please. I do not think the question asked is in the proper form. The right hon. gentleman has asked the minister when he changed his mind about some matter. I do not think a question in this form should be acceptable.

May I alter the format of the question and ask the minister whether he has changed his mind since he made that statement?

Mr. Paul Yewchuk (Athabasca):

Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Secretary of State for External Affairs. In view of the fact he has stated that Canada now has a one-China policy, does he now feel that the Red Chinese government is the government of Taiwan as well?

DAIRY INDUSTRY-LOSS OF QUOTA BY WESTERN PROVINCES

New Democratic Party

Mr. Ed Schreyer (Selkirk):

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I was about to conclude that Your Honour felt I was no longer a member of this house. I have not resigned yet. I should like to direct my question to the Minister of Agriculture. In effect it relates to the question put by the right hon. member for Prince Albert earlier this afternoon. Given the fact that the western Canadian dairy industry has lost one million pounds of its dairy quota and six million pounds have been relegated elsewhere in Canada, has the minister any course of action in mind to remedy the dairy policy which has such a great regional bias?

Hon. H. A. Olson (Minister of Agriculture):

Mr. Speaker, the result to which the hon. member alludes has not been because of any policy on the part of the Canadian Dairy

Commission. The facts of the matter are that the policies of the Canadian Dairy Commission are applied uniformly across the country and that we would resist the setting up of regional policies, respecting the activities of the Canadian Dairy Commission, to restrict interprovincial trade.

Mr. Schreyer:

Mr. Speaker, I am sure the Minister of Agriculture would agree I did not say the Dairy Commission policy was discriminatory in its intent but rather in its effect. I should like to ask the Minister of Agriculture whether the government is unwilling to take action with regard to the dairy policy and when he will undertake to do what he stated he would do as recorded in yesterday's Hansard at page 9388? He said he would be happy to list all the measures undertaken by the government to assist western agriculture.

I would be happy to give that list, which is rather long, if the rules would allow Your Honour to permit me to do so.

Hon. W. G. Dinsdale (Brandon-Souris):

Mr. Speaker, I had intended asking a question supplementary to that asked by the hon. member for Selkirk. Perhaps I might ask it as a separate question. It relates to the serious problem in the dairy industry in the prairie provinces. Is the minister not aware that when the criteria for the dairy policy were set out they did discriminate against the prairie producers?

Mr. Waller C. Carter (Si. John's West):

Mr. Speaker, my question is directed to the acting minister in charge of housing. Have the federal government or any of its agencies entered into an agreement with the province of Newfoundland to participate in a program of land assembly, public housing, water and sewer projects, which is estimated to cost in

excess of $150 million as announced yesterday in Newfoundland by Premier Smallwood.
