Mr TUDOR (for Dr. Maloney) asked the Minister for Trade and Customs, upon notice -

In view of the fact that the managing director of Robert Harper and Company, giving evidence before the Fair Profits Commission, as reported in yesterday's papers, states that it takes 120 bushels of oats to produce a ton of oatmeal, and as this varies from other sworn evidence given before the same Commission, will the Minister kindly inform the House -

(a)   the average weight of oats to produce a ton of oatmeal to make a short ton of 2,000 lbs. weight; (6) the amount of oats to produce a long ton of 2,240 lbs.; (c) what is a fair price for gristing a short ton of oatmeal; (d) what is a fair price for gristing a long ton of oatmeal?
