Hon. Robert Winters (Minister of Trade and Commerce):

Mr. Speaker, I wish to make a statement regarding the final payment on wheat for the crop year ending July 31, 1967.

Producers delivered a record total of 626,533,860 bushels of wheat to the Canadian Wheat Board in the 1966-67 crop year, including 23,599,710 bushels of Durum wheat. The pool account for wheat was closed on February 29.

The amount of the final payment to be distributed to producers is an unprecedented $314,958,251, including $14,943,967 to be distributed to producers who delivered Durum wheat. Thus the previous record payment of $272 million, which was made on the 1963-64 pool account, has been surpassed by $43 million.

Mr. Winters:

I wish to inform the house of the total prices realized by producers prior to the deduction of the 1 per cent Prairie Farm Assistance Act levy, on their deliveries of some of the more important grades of wheat. The farmers will receive a total per bushel, basis in store at the lakehead or Vancouver, as follows:

$1.98709 for No. 1 northern,

1.96117 for No. 2 northern,

1.91666 for No. 3 northern,

1.87758 for No. 4 northern, and

1.82677 for No. 5 wheat.

The prices realized on Durum grades total as follows:

$2.13402 for No. 1 C.W. Amber Durum,

2.10509 for No. 2, and

2.04954 for No. 3.

Congratulations are due to all concerned in the growing, handling, grading, transporting and selling of wheat for their contribution to a most successful marketing year. I would like to pay particular tribute to the Canadian Wheat Board, which so fully justified the faith placed in it by parliament last year when the powers of the board were made permanent.

Mr. Winters:

The average final payment for wheat other than Durum is a record 49.759

cents per bushel. The average final payment for Durum wheat is 63.323 cents per bushel. The over-all average of 50.270 cents per bushel is the largest average final payment in the history of the Canadian Wheat Board. The wheat board will begin mailing the final payment cheques tomorrow.

Mr. Speaker, I think the parliamentary secretary to the Minister of Consumer and Corporate Affairs could perhaps amplify on what has been said.

Hon. Robert Winters (Minister of Trade and Commerce):

This is something we are looking into, Mr. Speaker, and I had discussions on this subject with my officials this morning. This matter has been referred to the proper law authorities of the crown, and I shall be glad to reply more fully to my hon. friend later on. If parliament is not sitting at the time I will be glad to write him.
