Mr. Danforth:

Mr. Speaker, I have a supplementary question which has to do with food production. As food production is also greatly affected by the price and availability of fertilizer, can the minister indicate what percentage of fertilizer supplies is being exported by Canada to help developing nations, as indicated by the Minister of Finance in his budget address?

Mr. H. W. Danforth (Kent-Essex):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to address my question to the Minister of Agriculture. Because the government has based so much of its struggle against inflated food prices on encouraging in every way increased Canadian food production, does the minister meekly accept, or is he prepared to publicly challenge, allegations by the government's Food Prices Review Board that through marketing boards and other means Canadian producers are receiving exorbitant profits, especially on eggs and other poultry products?

Mr. Danforth:

Mr. Speaker, may I ask the minister a supplementary on behalf of the producers. Does the government condone the present prices that are being asked of the producers by the fertilizer companies? If it does not, is it going to take any action to subsidize the producers, or has it any other policy to alleviate these tremendous increases in costs?

Mr. H. W. Danforth (Kent-Essex):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to address my question to the Minister of Agriculture. In view of the fact the minister first assured the House that there would be no increase in the price of fertilizer and later modified this by saying that there might be a modest increase in the price because of increases in the cost of labour and materials, can the minister now say whether or not the tremendous increase that has been experienced by farmers will be allowed by the government, or will the government subsidize the producers or take some action to modify the prices that producers are being asked to pay?
