March 1, 1968

Mr. Jorgenson:

One would have thought the government would finally have recognized the importance to this country of agriculture and of the wheat farmer. Nevertheless we once more find ourselves in the position where despite rising costs of production prices of practically every agricultural commodity are falling. Is this because the government intends once again to use the farmer as a scapegoat to combat the inflation which their own actions have so largely brought about?

Mr. W. H. Jorgenson (Provencher):

I rise on a question of privilege, Mr. Speaker. I wonder if I might ask when question No. 32 is going to be answered. It has been on the order paper since May 10, 1967 and for two months during the previous session.

Mr. W. H. Jorgenson (Provencher):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to ask the Minister of Agriculture whether he has received information from representatives of potato producers in western Canada outlining a further deterioration in the situation since last week; and is the government now prepared to consider the application of value for duty?

February 8, 1968

Mr. W. H. Jorgenson (Provencher):

Mr. Speaker, may I direct a question to the Minister of Agriculture. It is based on a very serious situation that exists in western Canada caused by unprecedented imports of United States potatoes into that area. Is the minister in a position to state whether or not an application of value for duty will be made, as requested by the potato producers of western Canada?
