Maurice Dupré (Solicitor General of Canada)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Hon. MAURICE DUPRE (Acting Pc0i,-master General):

In reply to the hon. gentleman, I cannot make any announcement today, but I will look into the matter.
WHEAT SHIPMENTS On the orders of the day:
Mr. CAMERON R. McINTOSH (North Battleford): I have a question for the Min-

Wheat Shipments

ister of Trade and Commerce (Mr. Stevens). With regard to the free shipment of 8,000 bushels of wheat from Fort William to the port of London, England, via Buffalo and New York, on December 7, 1933, a shipment which was apparently in conflict with the intent of the Anglo-Canadian trade treaty, 1932, under which a preference of six cents a bushel was to be allowed Canadian wheat shipped through British ports, may I ask the minister what action, if any, his government intends to take with regard to the breach which the British customs authorities have made in the government's policy of political and economic imperialism as applied to wheat?
