Mr. R. E. Forbes (Dauphin):

Mr. Speaker, I have a question for the Minister of Industry. My question is prompted by the number of inquiries I have had from automobile dealers in my constituency. Did the Minister meet representatives of the Automobile Dealers Association yesterday, and what was the position of the Government regarding new and used cars? Would he advise the House on Government policy in this regard?
