Hon. Otto E. Lang (Minister of Justice):

Mr. Speaker, the Canadian Wheat Board has made substantial sales of grain for the forward shipping period in the summer as well as into the fall and, indeed, immediately beyond. It is not customary to comment on specific additional negotiations. There is a very wide price differential between the Wheat Board quoted price and the market price being offered in the United States. This kind of wide differential existed previously but the Wheat Board held its price, and subsequent events justified it in doing so.
