Liberal

Mr. Howe:

I should like to set my hon. friend straight on his information. The Anglo-Canadian trade committee is made up

House of Commons
of private citizens of both countries. It has no relation whatever to the continuing committee, which is composed of officials of the two governments with the purpose of discussing trade matters as between the two countries. I have never seen the recommendations of the Anglo-Canadian trade committee. They have never been furnished to the government, as there is no reason why they should be. I have not had the advantage, as my hon. friend has, of seeing them quoted in the press.
