Mr. EULER:

Perhaps I may make a brief verbal reply to the question of the hon. member for Broadview (Mr. Church) as to whether any conferences nave been held between the United States and Canadian officials with regard to wheat marketing policies. There has been only one conference, and that was held in August of last year. It arose by reason of the fact that there was some sort of gathering of agriculturists at that time at Macdonald College, Quebec, and the officials of the United States department of agriculture, together with the under-secretary for agriculture, took advantage of the occasion to meet some of the officials of the Canadian

Questions

government to discuss wheat marketing policies. The under-secretary of agriculture of the United States discussed wheat prospects in that country and the market outlook in view of world wheat conditions, and requested and received from the Canadian officials information as to the practice of marketing wheat in this country through the wheat board, the guaranteed advanced price, and the offering of wheat constantly for sale at competitive prices. The officials from the United States then, described their own problem and intimated that possibly they might work along the same lines with regard to the marketing of wheat. No commitments were made. I do not know that I can add anything to what I have said.
