QUESTION OF ASSISTANCE TO BRITISH COLUMBIA FRUIT GROWERS


On the orders of the day:


CCF

Herbert Wilfred Herridge

Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (C.C.F.)

Mr. H. W. Herridge (Kootenay West):

should like to direct a question to the appropriate minister. On March 19 this house passed a motion of mine for the production of papers with respect to the correspondence between British Columbia and the federal government in connection with compensation for fruit trees destroyed by frost in British Columbia. Has the government received the permission of the government of British Columbia with respect to the correspondence, and when will the return be tabled?

James Garfield Gardiner (Minister of Agriculture)

Liberal

Right Hon. J. G. Gardiner (Minister of Agriculture):

The government has had two or three different proposals from the government of British Columbia, and on each occasion the same decision has been reached as was reported to the house some days ago, namely, that the amount involved is not considered to be beyond the capacity of the province to take care of, and that it is one of these matters which is generally considered to be a provincial responsibility, if it is the responsibility of anyone to assist.

Edmund Davie Fulton

Mr. Fulton:

May I ask another question

dealing with the same matter? Has the government reached any decision, and if so, what decision, on the later representations which I understand were made during the course of the past week or so on the same subject by the fruit growers of British Columbia?

Mr. Herridge:

The Minister of Agriculture did not answer my question. I finally asked:

Is the government going to table the correspondence and documents mentioned in the motion for the production of papers?

Mr. Gardiner:

There is no objection to that, Mr. Speaker. The documents, I think, were tabled up to a certain date; there has been other correspondence since, and that can be tabled as well.
