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?

Mr. H. B. ADSHEAD (East Calgary):

Mr. Speaker, on April 20 I asked the Minister of Labour (Mr. Heenan) with respect to an agreement which, according to the newspapers, had been entered into between the Nova Scotia miners and the British Empire Steel Corporation. At the time he promised to furnish some further information. May I ask when the agreement will be tabled, and what action the Labour department has taken in the matter? I am quite willing to let this stand as a notice of motion for production of papers.
