Hon. J. W. EDWARDS (Frontenac-Adding-ton):
Mr. Speaker, I desire to put a question which, in the absence of the Minister of Agriculture (Mr. Motherwell), may be answered by the Minister of Health (Mr. King) or some other member of the government. There has been a very serious outbreak of rabies in the county of Frontenac, and a number of infected cattle and sheep have had to be destroyed. My question is: Under
such circumstances will the government recompense to some extent the farmers for the loss that they have sustained?
