Mr. JOHN BRACKEN (Leader of the Opposition):
I wish to direct a question to
the Minister of Trade and Commerce having to do with the announcement he made yesterday with respect to the United Kingdom wheat agreement. He advised that the price of wheat to the United Kingdom would be SI .55 a bushel for the next two years, with a minimum of SI a bushel at the fourth year. My question to the minister is this. Is the government now in a position to state whether there will be any change in the domestic price in Canada
now SI .25 a bushel-or whether there will be any change in the initial price of $1.25 which is now paid to wheat growers? If the minister is not in a position to make an announcement now perhaps he would do so at an early date.
