Mr. W. H. Jorgenson (Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Agriculture):

Mr. Speaker, the question is rather ambiguous. It is rather difficult to estimate the total cost of storage if you take into consideration all the people who are involved in the storage of grain. I presume, however, that the hon. member is asking for the storage cost under

Starred Questions

the Temporary Wheat Reserves Act. I do have those figures here, and they are as follows:

February 22, 1961

Mr. W. H. Jorgenson (Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Agriculture):

Mr. Speaker, the answer to the first part of the question is that the federal government has undertaken to contribute to the cost of a flood control project on the Fairford river.

The answer to the second part of the question is that this was authorized by governor in council on October 28, 1960. The federal share is 50 per cent of the cost to the province of Manitoba, not to exceed $300,000, to be charged to the parliamentary appropriation in the main estimates for land protection, reclamation and development.

The answer to part three of the question is that the work is more than half done and will be completed in 1961. The answer to part four is that the work is being performed by contracts let by the province. No claims have yet been submitted to the federal government.
