Mr. WILLIAM HAYHURST (Vegreville):

Mr. Speaker, before the orders of the day are called I should like to ask a question of the Minister of Finance (Mr. Dunning) as to tariff board reference No/ 99, with respect to vegetable oils, and the correspondence set out in the votes and proceedings of May 23, 1939. Has the government put forward any further suggestions to the United Kingdom government with regard to implementing the recommendation of the tariff board, in accordance with the concluding paragraph of the letter of May 17 from Sir Thomas Inskip, Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs?

Hon. CHARLES A. DUNNING (Minister of Finance): The government has not put

forward any further suggestions to the United Kingdom government. In view of the fact that the report of the tariff board recommends a specific form of treatment of the matter, of course it would require action by this parliament. It is difficult to work out within a short space of time anything which would take the place of that suggested action, and at the same time be likely, in view of the reply of the United Kingdom, to meet with their concurrence. The matter is under consideration.

Mr. HAYHURST:

At any rate it was evident that the government was not doing all it could to advertise our products. I wondered if the officials the government had there were doing all they could to explain to the people Canada's products. It pays to advertise; I believe in advertising. With regard to fish, we need a balanced diet, and if a pamphlet were circulated showing what we should eat, more people would consume these different products. The benefit of the Glasgow exhibition advertising would have been greatly multiplied if there had been more men and women there who would have spoken about our exhibits and interested the public. Thousands of people were passing through these places, but no one seemed to know what it was all about. They were attracted by the beauty of the exhibit, but its utilitarian and commercial aspect was not presented to the best advantage to the people from all parts of the British empire who were there.

How many people are employed in the New York exhibit?

Mr. HAYHURST:

Has the government a sufficient number of people to show the products that are exhibited? I ask that question because last year I went to Glasgow to the empire exhibition, and I congratulate the government upon its splendid pavilion there and the number of people who visited that exhibition. Most of the people to whom I spoke were pleased with the exhibits

displayed by the Canadian government, but my criticism is that I found that many people could not understand the various minerals and so forth exhibited by the Department of Mines and Resources. There were nickel products, asbestos and other things, and ores, but no one seemed to be there to explain the exhibits. So I took it upon myself to talk to the people about the various commodities produced in Canada. Very soon I had

an audience of about one hundred round me, whether because I was a good lecturer, or my good looks-
