Mr. GARDINER:

I should like to ask

the minister a question with regard to this amount of $47,000, to provide for the payment to the province of Saskatchewan of one-half of the amount disbursed by that province for the relief to needy settlers. Has that recently been disbursed?

Mr. STEWART (Edmonton):

The provinces carry the losses. This is just the same as in Alberta. When it is ascertained that the amounts cannot be recovered, we divide the loss. We are simply carrying out the old agreement that was made.

Mr. STEWART (Edmonton):

It is a very-active association with headquarters at Calgary, and is largely composed of ranchers; it does not take in the farmers. We have from time to time given them grants to assist them in their work.
