Right Hon W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Leader of the Opposition):

May I ask the
Minister of Trade and Commerce or the Prime Minister whether negotiations are proceeding with the government of France with respect to a treaty between Canada and France on trade matters. I ask this question because I believe despatches have come from France which would indicate that the French government is contemplating banning fresh fruits from Canada and putting a prohibitive duty of $1 a bushel on imports of grain as a consequence of the abrogation of the treaty we had.
