Mr. BOULANGER (Translation):
The estimates of agriculture were decreased by $3,000,000. When it is a matter of helping agriculture and the farming classes, one does not begin by cutting down the ordinary estimates affected to agriculture. If these estimates had not been decreased by $3,000,000 this year; if the same amount were to be expended as in preceding years to maintain the technical and ordinary staff of the Department of Agriculture, and to distribute the grants which agriculture usually receives from the Dominion government, it strikes me that it would be unnecessary to introduce a special measure to relieve agriculture.
