Mr. ANGUS MacINNIS (Vancouver East):

I should like to put a question to the Minister of Fisheries. I regret I did not have time to give him notice of it. Is the minister aware that two hundred and fifty fishing vessels ordinarily engaged in ling cod fishing are tied up at the present time on the Pacific coast because of the dispute between the fishermen and the fishing companies over the price of ling cod as set by the wartime prices and trade board? Would the minister be kind enough to take this as a notice and reply on Thursday?
