March 1, 1968

Mr. Jorgenson:

They had to set up a task force to look into the matter. I do not oppose the appointment of the task force; I know some of those who are on it. I can say to the minister that on that task force are some of Canada's best agriculturists. I only hope, if they bring down recommendations during the life of this government, that those recommendations will be acted upon.

I was interested to hear the hon. member for Kootenay East, who hoped that we on this side would be fair, and give the government credit for what it has done for or to agriculture. I am not sure which term he used. I am inclined to think that "to" is what he meant, though he used the other term.

Mr. W. H. Jorgenson (Provencher):

I rise on a question of privilege, Mr. Speaker. I wonder if I might ask when question No. 32 is going to be answered. It has been on the order paper since May 10, 1967 and for two months during the previous session.

Mr. W. H. Jorgenson (Provencher):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to ask the Minister of Agriculture whether he has received information from representatives of potato producers in western Canada outlining a further deterioration in the situation since last week; and is the government now prepared to consider the application of value for duty?

February 8, 1968

Mr. W. H. Jorgenson (Provencher):

Mr. Speaker, may I direct a question to the Minister of Agriculture. It is based on a very serious situation that exists in western Canada caused by unprecedented imports of United States potatoes into that area. Is the minister in a position to state whether or not an application of value for duty will be made, as requested by the potato producers of western Canada?
