Mr. Bill Knight (Assiniboia):

Mr. Speaker, my question is for the minister in charge of the Canadian Wheat Board. In view of the fact the asking price of the Canadian Wheat Board on the international market is running somewhere around $5.60, in view of the fact that the international

price on the commodity market in Chicago has been running in the neighbourhood of $3.90, and in view of the problems in our transportation system, would the minister inform the House whether the Canadian Wheat Board is at the present time negotiating contracts and is in a position to sign contracts for the movement and sale of grain for the rest of the crop year and into the next crop year in the fall?
