Mr. Drope:

My question arises out of the announcement of the Minister of Agriculture, and the fact that in the Globe and Mail it is stated that butter was offered at 57J cents. Will the minister tell us what the policy is, inasmuch as he says that the floor price is 58 cents? Has any butter yet been taken by the dairy products board? If not, when will they start taking it?

Mr. R. E. Drope (Northumberland, Onl.):

I should like to address a question to the Minister of Agriculture. Since he is not in his seat, perhaps his parliamentary assistant will answer it. It has to do with the announcement of the minister on Thursday last about a floor price on butter. There seems to be some confusion as to just what the announcement means-whether it is hoped that the floor price of fifty-eight cents will be held and all butter bought at that price, or whether a subsidy will be paid and the price of butter allowed to go below the floor. May we have a statement clarifying the position?

Mr. R. E. Drope (Northumberland, Oni.):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to ask a question of the Minister of Agriculture, having to do with butter. Has any butter been tendered to the dairy products board, now that it has reached the floor price? Further, what information is necessary to satisfy the board that the butter cannot be sold to the trade?
