Mr. MacKINNON (Edmonton West):

Preliminary regulations in connection with the handling of the 1942 wheat crop were provided by order in council, P.C. 1S02, dated March 9, 1942. It is impossible to reach any definite decision in regard to quotas and delivery regulations until we have some more definite idea of the size of the crop to be handled. Discussions are now being carried on in Ottawa with the chief commissioner and members of the wheat board, and as soon as decisions are brought to finality I shall be very glad to make an announcement to the house. If by storage payments to the farmer the hon. member refers to farm storage, there has been as yet no decision on this point.
