Mr. Adrien Lambert (Bellechasse):
Mr. Speaker, my question is directed to the hon. Minister of Agriculture.
According to our information, the Maple Lodge corporation of Toronto has requested and obtained an additional import permit of over 1,760,000 pounds of poultry for 1979. Could the Minister of Agriculture confirm this and advise the House whether he will continue to allow chicken imports permits to be issued by the Minister of Industry, Trade and Commerce?
