HC Deb 27 February 1951 vol 484 c1911
53. Colonel Crosthwaite-Eyre

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is the additional sum payable to Canada on the conclusion of the Anglo-Canadian Wheat Agreement, through the difference between the world price and that paid under the Agreement.

Mr. Gaitskell

None, Sir.

Colonel Crosthwaite-Eyre

Does that information refer to the assumption of His Majesty's Government that no sum was payable, or is it the result of discussions with Canada at which it was agreed that none is payable?

Mr. Gaitskell

The matter was discussed in May, 1950, with Mr. Howe, and the result was that no further payment was to be made.
