Mr. H. A. MULLINS (Marquette):
As a matter of privilege, I wish to ask the Minister of Agriculture a question. I have received a letter from Manitoba from a former member of the house. The letter reads:
There is a report circulating here, and in your constituency, that you contracted for all the available ocean space for cattle, and that the government had to bargain with you.
Will you kindly let me know the facts, and oblige.
I wish to ask the Minister of Agriculture if that is so, and whether I ever had anything to do with any contract for ocean space in any shape or form.
