Hon. D. S. Harkness (Minisier of National Defence):

Mr. Speaker, I do not feel it is part of my administrative function to comment on allegations made by Mr. Manson with regard to what are the prevailing rates for carpenters in some particular sections of the country. I may say, however, that a survey has been made of the rates paid in the Barrie area and I understand the matter will be considered very shortly by the appropriate government departments concerned.

Mr. Harkness:

As I think the hon. member knows, surveys of this nature are made by the Department of Labour.

Mr. Argue:

What I wanted to know was this. Is it the policy of the Department of National Defence to pay the prevailing rate after the survey has disclosed the prevailing rate?

Mr. Harkness:

As I think the hon. member knows, Mr. Speaker, this department and all other government departments pay the rate recommended by the Department of Labour on the basis of the studies they make of these matters.

LATIN AMERICA


On the orders of the day:


CCF

Hazen Robert Argue

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

Mr. Hazen Argue (Assiniboia):

I should like to direct a question to the Secretary of State for External Affairs. Would the minister care to comment on a press report emanating from Washington that President Kennedy would welcome any move by Canada to join in the proposed plans for economic assistance to Latin America? Has there been any discussion between the two governments on this subject?

AGRICULTURE

CANNED PORK


On the orders of the day:


CCF

Harold Edward Winch

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

Mr. Harold E. Winch (Vancouver East):

May I address a question to the Minister of Agriculture or in his absence to the Acting Minister of Agriculture, or to the parliamentary secretary to the Minister of Agriculture, of which I sent notice yesterday. Is the Minister of Agriculture in a position to report on the serious allegation, which I have drawn to his attention, that Kelly Douglas Limited in Vancouver have somehow obtained a supply of canned Spork from government sources

Inquiries of the Ministry and are offering it to the trade wholesale at a price of 7 cents a tin less than that charged by Burns and Company?

Warner Herbert Jorgenson (Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Agriculture)

Progressive Conservative

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

I wish to thank the hon. member for giving me notice of his intention to ask this question. The agricultural stabilization board offered stocks of canned pork luncheon meat for sale in Canada at a reduced price from April 15 to October 15, 1960. The product packed under a government label as "Canadian pork luncheon meat" was sold directly to any firm applying for stocks. Proprietary brands were sold back only to the original manufacturers. "Spork" is the proprietary brand of Bums and Company, and sales of government stocks of this brand were made only to them. No government stocks of canned pork under the "Spork" label were sold by the stabilization board to Kelly Douglas Limited nor to any other firm apart from Burns and Company.
