William Richard Motherwell (Minister of Agriculture)

Liberal

Mr. MOTHERWELL:

We will be less apt to go there. There is very little butter goes there, it will go to the world market, which is the United Kingdom. Occasionally some goes to the United States but not very much, and that amount will decrease under the twelve cent duty.

Would there not be less if our tariff was higher?

I

mean from other countries as well as from the United States. Would not the same principle hold?

Mr. MOTHERWELL:

As soon as we begin exporting, which will be in a month or so, there will be no butter coming from anywhere, because we will be exporting it.

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. TOLMIE:

I think we have had an

interesting discussion on this very important subject. It is now eleven o'clock and many of our agricultural members who would like to take part in this discussion are not here. I want to say a few words myself, and I think under the circumstances the minister might let this stand over until after Easter.

We will have the whole question of dairying up again on the live stock vote. I would like to make a little progress.

Mr. MEIGHEN:

The minister has not forgotten that he made a similar promise once before and when he got into the estimates, where we could discuss the particular item, he called on the chairman to shut discussion off.

Mr. MEIGHEN:

The minister's memory is as poor as his dependability. That occasion is very dear in the minds of a number of us, and I do not think the minister could have forgotten it. It was on a similar vote. I am ready to accept any measure of repentance by the minister, and if he will promise not to do that again, so far as I am concerned I am prepared to let this go through.
