Mr. Charlton:

Creamery butter production in Ontario, Quebec and the maritime provinces totalled 920,772,000 pounds from May 1, 1958 when the price of butter was raised from 58 cents to 64 cents a pound, to January 31, 1962. The increase of 6 cents per pound on this quantity is equivalent to $55,246,320 additional returns to the producers in these provinces.

February 27, 1962

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

The

resolution to which the hon. member for Fraser Valley referred has been received from the secretary of the Holstein-Friesian association. In brief it requests the government to provide the resources necessary to ensure the carrying on of record of performance testing services at the level required for the continued improvement of dairy cattle. This the government has done.

Ontario is the only province in which any difficulty exists in taking qualified breeders under R.O.P. inspection as soon as they apply. There has been a heavy increase in the demands for this service in Ontario. Since 1957 the number of herds under inspection in Ontario has increased by 335, and the number of inspectors by 13.

If the facilities are not available to take new applicants under inspection when they apply, they are placed on a waiting list until they can be accommodated through the provision of more staff or the normal dropping out of others under the policy. It has been considered preferable to follow this practice rather than reduce the service to breeders under test. This has created no substantial delays. There have been no applications prior to January 1, 1962 which have not been taken care of, and there have been only 13 firm applications since that date which are now on the waiting list.

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

Mr. Speaker, I have no comment to make on a newspaper article. I would point out to the hon. member for Bonavista-Twillingate that this matter is under consideration now by the R.C.M.P. and is being looked after very well.
