When addressing the House on the budget debate, I discussed the question of the small reduction in duties which were made upon raw sugar by reason of the West Indian agreement and the Customs Tariff Act. I stated at that time that it would not assist the consumer to any great extent, because all the sugar refiners in Canada were in the combine. I have since been informed that one refining com-Mr. PERLEY.
pany, the Dominion Sugar Company, Limited, was not actually in the combine. I am told that they sell direct to the retailer. I do not wish to mis-state any position and I take this opportunity of making these remarks.
