Mr. Haas:

Mr. Speaker, as the minister obviously did not make any attempt to answer my question I might ask him this: is it the intention of the government to require the country to put up with the same policies the government has introduced in the past, which have landed the country in the horrible economic mess it is in today?

Hon. Harry W. Hays (Minister of Agriculture):

1. The Department of Agriculture is not aware of the magnitude of Connaught Laboratories activities in the distribution of swine breeding stock.

2. The Department of Agriculture has no information to the effect that the Connaught Laboratories are not prepared to accept present ROP standards. The Department is not contemplating any basic changes in principle in ROP testing, however, some changes in procedures are expected to be introduced in the relatively near future.

Hon. Harry W. Hays (Minister of Agriculture):

Mr. Speaker, as hon. Members are aware, the department announced on June 22 that the golden nematode, a serious pest of potato and tomato crops, had been found in a commercial field of potatoes in the Saanich peninsula of Vancouver Island.

This is a serious pest, not only because of its effect on potato crops but because if it became widespread it could result in restrictions on exports of plants with soil and seed potatoes, particularly to the United States.

The nematode was identified on the Vancouver Island farm on June 17. The farm has been placed under quarantine, and the export out of Canada of plants or crops with soil from Vancouver Island has been prohibited. Departmental officials have conducted an intensive survey of crops on the peninsula and to date have found no further indications of infestation except on this one farm. Investigations, however, are being continued to ensure that the infestation is confined to this one farm.

With regard to the question raised by the hon. Member for Esquimalt-Saanich, I may say that in cases where it is warranted appropriate compensation is provided for under the Destructive Insect and Pest Act.
