Mr. JOHN VALLANCE (South Battle-ford) :

Might I ask the Prime Minister a

question in view of what he has just said? Let us take the instance of the Grain Growers Grain Company in Winnipeg consigning wheat to Buffalo or New York for storage. Does that wheat, when transshipped from those ports, not come under the preference?

Mr. BENNETT:

It is not for me to answer questions with respect to illustrations. Great Britain has, through the judgment of her parliament, imposed the conditions under which free entry will be granted. I have read from the statute indicating what those conditions are and I have also read the regulations governing importations into the United Kingdom.

William Horace Taylor

Mr. W. H. TAYLOR (Norfolk-Elgin):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to ask the Minister of Labour a question based upon the unsatisfactory market condition which exists for flue cured tobacco in southern Ontario. Has he or any department of government received complaints of an alleged purchasing combine among the purchasing companies of flue cured tobacco in southern Ontario, the purpose of the combine of course being to keep the prices to the growers below the true market value? If so, what action does the government intend to take to remedy the situation?

Mr. GORDON:

Probably so. But if such a condition exists, the provisions of the Combines Act are available for anyone, and if it is made to appear by representations that a condition exists, such as the hon. member has indicated, then I would be very glad to set in motion the provisions of the act to see that such a condition is corrected.

Mr. Speaker, in view of the long discussion that has taken place on the resolution now standing on the order paper, and as it appears to be uncertain when an opportune may be afforded, that is, in the immediate future, for the discussion of the railway legislation, it is the purpose of the government to introduce the bill in the Senate.

LOBSTER FISHERY

Alfred Edgar MacLean

Mr. A. E. MacLEAN (Prince):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to ask a question of the Acting Minister of Fisheries based upon this telegram which I have received, dated at Summerside, October 25:

Under instructions Department of Fisheries patrol boats Arras and Nova Third destroying all lobster gear in straits. On account stormy weather and other handicaps fishermen could not land their gear. Lobster fishing this fall has been disastrous. Cannot understand such action from department. Fishermen indebted to large extent and unable to replace gear destroyed by patrol boats. Could you kindly interview Minister of Fisheries and explain situation?

I would ask the minister if he would have this matter looked into immediately and have the land wardens interview the fishermen and see that their traps are taken ashore and that the patrol boats are not allowed to continue destroying the gear.
