asked the Minister of Food whether moneys collected throughout the Dominion of Canada in boxes marked "Milk for Britain" are received in this country in dollars, or in the form of dried milk or some other processed milk; and what method he has adopted of distributing these gifts.

I welcome this opportunity of renewing our thanks to the Association of Kinsmen's Clubs in Canada, through whose generosity we receive this milk.

Will the Parliamentary Secretary do something to make it known publicly in Canada that these gifts have been used in this very useful way, because they are apparently not aware of the fact?
