May 15, 1952 (21st Parliament, 6th Session)


Clarence Decatur Howe (Minister of Defence Production; Minister of Trade and Commerce)


Mr. Howe:

Some days ago I brought down the annual report of the board. That gives the information. I am sorry I have not a copy here. The reason my hon. friend does not have a copy is that we have not been able to get the report from the printers, but I am told it will be available for distribution next week, well before the meeting of the agriculture committee, and it contains all that information. The only information I have here is that the earned revenue from government elevators was $1,101,914 and the expenditures were $911,745, so there was a profit of about $200,000 in the operation of the elevators. That covers the elevators at Prince Rupert, Moose Jaw, Saskatoon, Calgary, Edmonton and Lethbridge, and the Port Arthur elevator which is leased to a private operator.
