Mr. H. W. HERRIDGE (Kootenay West):

Mr. Speaker, in view of the statement made by the Prime Minister and by the Minister of Fisheries, and of the stated inability of the British government to purchase Canadian apples because of a shortage of dollars, and of the situation facing the tree fruits industry, I should like to ask a question based upon letters and telegrams I have received from the Associated Growers of British Columbia. Will the government consider making arrangements for the shipment of apples to Great Britain this year similar to those that are being made with regard to the shipment of food as mentioned this afternoon?
