Mr. ROY:

Mr. Chairman, with your
permission, I should like to ask another question. If I understood the hon. minister properly, he said that the fishermen could hold their catch until spring when the price paid for cured mackerel is more attractive. How can they wait when they have no flour wherewith to make bread? How could they wait a whole year before marketing their catch? Would it be possible to guarantee an average price to allow them to hold their fish until the price is more advantageous?
