AGRICULTURAL MACHINERY-STANDARDIZATION OF PARTS.


Mr. A. B. McCOIG (Kent, Ont.) moved for leave to introduce Bill No. 112, to provide for the standardization of parts of agricultural machinery.

Unionist

Mr. SPEAKER:

I have not seen a copy of the Bill and, therefore, I do not know what it contains; but from the title, as it appears on the Order Paper, there may be some question whether the subject matter has reference to trade, and if it has, the hon. member could proceed only by resolution. Subject to that consideration, the Bill may receive its introduction.

Mr. McCOIG:

The object of this Bill is not as some hon. members seem to think. We are asking for the standardization, not of agricultural implements, but simply of some of the interchangeable parts, and that can be very easily done without any great expense to the manufacturers and with great convenience to users of agricultural machinery throughout the country.

Newton Wesley Rowell (Minister presiding over the Department of Health; President of the Privy Council)

Unionist

Hon. Mr. ROWELL:

The preparation of an answer to this question would involve a computation in all branches of the Government of the salaries of those receiving a bonus, as distinct from all who are paid current rates of pay, and the average percentage on the basis of $1,000 of salary, one would think, would not have any particular value, because the bonus is not based on percentages. If the hon. member who has

propounded the question has any particular information he desires to get, I should be glad to assist him in getting it, but it would involve a great deal of time and trouble to prepare an answer to this question as it stands.
