Hon. GROTE STIRLING (Yale):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to ask the Minister of Trade and Commerce (Mr. Euler) a question in reference to the accuracy of a statement appearing in a London paper which reached me last night, to the effect that Canada has submitted an extended list of articles which will be considered for tariff reduction during the negotiations in connection with the revision of the Canada-United States agreement. It goes on to say that the list includes certain specified kinds of grain, fruits, vegetables, fish, furs, paper and pulp boards, cattle and timber. Is that an accurate report, and if so have the industries affected been made aware of the fact?
