Mr. F. C. BETTS (London):
I should like to ask the Minister of National Revenue (Mr. Ilsley) a question of which I gave him notice a few minutes ago by telephone, not having had an opportunity to advise him earlier.
The American market is flooded at the present time with Dutch sets of onions which are being offered in this country at a cent and a half a pound. The cost in Canada is six cents a pound. I would ask the minister whether, having regard to the fact that this particular crop has a value in western Ontario alone of some $200,000, the government is
prepared to impose the dumping duty, as was done in 1931, by adding four and a half cents a pound to the invoice cost?
