Hon. R. B. BENNETT (Leader of the Opposition):
The real difficulty to which
attention was directed, namely, the use by the grain trade of a ticket that had not been approved by the Board of Grain Commissioners for Canada, for which undoubtedly the government must accept full responsibility, has I understand been settled to the satisfaction of all parties concerned.
So far as we may be interested, we are only desirous that the great agricultural producing sections of the country should feel that they are deriving the full return for their labours from the sale of their product. As I understand that this committee composed of representatives of all parties, has striven for weeks to arrive at conclusions that would be satisfactory so far as it may be possible to all parties concerned, and that these conclusions are now embodied in the legislation which is submitted to the house, we regard it as our duty to say to you, sir, and to the house that regarding the legislation as being acceptable to all interests after it has been fully considered and canvassed in the committee, we shall do our utmost to expedite its progress through the house.
