Mr. BRACKEN:

This raises another question which I brought up the other day and which has not been answered, namely, the government policy with respect to apples. The minister of agriculture of Nova Scotia according to press reports has intimated that the British government will not be in the market for apples this year, and there are grave doubts whether a market will be found for our apples. Two or three days ago I asked the Minister of Trade and Commerce (Mr. MacKinnon) to make a statement on this matter, and he said he would consult the other ministers and then one of them would make a statement. I suggest that this would be an appropriate time for some minister to make a statement of policy with respect to markets for Canadian apples.
