§ 5. Mr. Biggs-Davison
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food to what extent fresh and canned deciduous and citrus fruit to be bought from the United States of America under a recent agreement was unobtainable within the Commonwealth or Colonial Empire.
§ Mr. Godber
Commonwealth and Colonial supplies of canned grape fruit and fresh lemons are insufficient and imports of canned peaches and fruit cocktail from the United States will represent only 3 per cent. of our imports of canned fruit. None of these imports will cost us dollars. I could not agree that supplies should be restricted solely to Commonwealth sources.
