Hon. FRANK OLIVER (Edmonton):
I wish to make an inquiry of the Minister of Trade and Commerce (Sir George Foster), who is not in his place, in regard to a notice appearing in the Montreal Gazette this morning respecting the limitation of the price of wheat. Recently an order was promulgated fixing a maximum limit of $2.40 a bushel on wheat of last year's crop after August 1. The statement in the Gazette, as I read it, is that the price of wheat is absolutely fixed at $2.40 a bushel until August 31. I do not understand whether it is stated that the provision has application particularly to last year's or to this year's crop. I wanted to ask the njinister if the provisions of the order are correctly stated.
