Mr. John Charlton (Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Agriculture):

The

answer to the question is yes. A considerable number of meat plants have applied recently to have their operations brought under the federal meat inspection service. In order to provide the staff required for this service the department has been authorized to increase

its establishment by 41 positions of meat inspection assistant and 11 positions of veterinarians.

Mr. Charlton:

Mr. Speaker, the answer is as follows. No request has been received from the Nova Scotia government for a subsidy to Nova Scotia farmers to help meet the costs of corn imported from the United States. However, requests have been made by the Nova Scotia government and by others for measures to bring down the cost of feed grains to farmers in the maritime provinces, and this matter is under consideration.

Mr. Charlton:

The government of Canada did not appoint a butter advisory committee of Canada. However, in 1960 the government employed a public relations firm to conduct a butter promotional campaign. In the course of its work this firm named a butter advisory committee to assist them in an advisory capacity. This committee consisted of seven members.

The answer to part 2 is:

T. J. Wheeler, Toronto, Ontario, public relations counsellor.

Mrs. W. R. Walton, Jr., Toronto, Ontario, housewife.

Robert C. Smellie, Russell, Manitoba, retired creamery operator.

Dr. E. W. McHenry, Toronto, Ontario, professor of nutrition, school of hygiene, University of Toronto.

Frank E. Lutes, Berry Mills, N.B., dairy farmer.

J. B. Lemoine, Montreal, P.Q., president, L'Union Catholiques des Cultivateurs.

L. W. Pearsall, Ottawa, Ontario, assistant deputy minister, Department of Agriculture.

The answer to part 3 is that six meetings were held on the following dates: October

Questions

Mr. Charlton:

1. The Department of Agriculture has a record of all cases which have been reported to it and where it has been determined by departmental veterinarians that the animal died of rabies.

2. The indemnities paid in Ontario are based on official valuation of the livestock, as related to a maximum of $100 for horses, $250 for cattle and $40 for swine and sheep. The federal government reimburses Ontario for 40 per cent of the indemnity payments made by the province.

3. The present authority for federal participation applies only to Ontario, which is the only province having requested it. I feel sure that should the province of Quebec make a similar request it would be given favourable consideration.
