Douglas Scott Harkness

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Harkness:

Then, if that is so, the return does not answer the question. It merely states there were 70 million bushels of non-mill-able wheat. My question asks for the number of bushels each of Nos. 5 and 6 and feed at whatever was the most convenient date. That of course would include wheat in those grades which have been taken in this year, and not merely wheat transferred from last year's ' account. I should like to have it restored to the order paper.

Mr. Howe:

It has been a practice for many years to refuse information as to the current marketing position of wheat, for reasons my hon. friend will understand. We do not wish to give our customers our stock position. If we did, it might easily have a bearish effect on the market. Therefore the information cannot be given in the form asked.

Mr. Harkness:

Mr. Speaker, we have had numerous returns giving the amount of wheat held at various periods by the wheat board throughout the year. I can see no reason why this particular question could not be answered in view of the numerous other questions in this regard which have been answered.
