Mr. Dumont:

Mr. Speaker, since the hon. member for Lac-Saint-Jean can defend himself so well and is so aggressive, I would ask him to name the hon. member who said "no", as he did say that that "no" came from his side of the House.

In any event, Mr. Speaker, we will abide by your comments and we will limit ourselves to the problem being debated tonight, namely that of the dairy industry, and I dare hope that there will be no more interruptions.

As a member of the Standing Committee on Agriculture, I had the opportunity of visiting a part of Canada and to become familiar with the existing problems. Everywhere, I found nothing but affluence and surpluses, and the real problem of the Eastern farmers is one of surplus production, which is, by the same token, a curse.

In connection with the remarks of the hon. member for Lac-Saint-Jean, I can say that everybody was prepared to let the hon. member for Bellechasse go on with his comments except the hon. member for Lac-Saint-Jean, and we heard a "no" from there. I saw him say it and I will not withdraw my words. I blame the hon. member for Lac-Saint-Jean for having prevented the hon. member for Bellechasse from continuing with the authoritative account he was giving us.

Mr. Dumont:

Mr. Speaker, may I rephrase my question more concisely so as to enable the minister to answer? Did the government of Canada refuse to allow Spanish airlines to run regular flights between Spain and Canada?
