Mr. FIELDING.

The other day the hon. member for North Toronto (Mr. Foster) objected to anybody handing anything into the ' Hansard ' which was not read. Therefore I hope my hon. friend will read it, because I would like to have it on * Hansard '.

quently extended to the Minister of Finance on many occasions.

Denmark is practically the only agricultural country which admits agricultural products free. Probably Denmark is the most highly educated country agriculturally in Europe, or possibly in the wmrld. Their agriculture is carried on under the most perfect system. The Technical Education Commission propose to visit Denmark and they will find so much of interest and gain so much information that will be of importance to Canada that I hope that when they come back with their report the people of Canada, the government, and this parliament will recognize the necessity, up to a certain point, until we get our agricultural and technical education thoroughly well established, of protecting the agricultural industry. With the permission of the House, I will submit the following tables:
