asked the Minister of Food, as tinned salmon has been scarce for a considerable period, when the next distribution is likely to take place.

Will the right hon. and gallant Gentleman make sure that on this occasion less goes to catering establishments and more to housewives?

:The hon. Member can rest assured that it will be fairly distributed.

:Can my right hon. and gallant Friend estimate how much is to be imported from British Columbia during the current year?

:Of the allocation which I have just announced, I should think that 72 per cent. will be Canadian.
