Robert Weir (Minister of Agriculture)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. WEIR (Melfort):

The present grades for hay and straw were established some twenty-five years ago, when the demand for these commodities was of a different nature from now. We have had a number of requests that the definitions of the grades as set out in the statute be repealed and that authority be given to the minister to establish new grades more in conformity with present requirements. If this bill could be given its two readings this afternoon, I would then refer it to the committee on agriculture.

Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.

This question apparently refers to matters coming before the interprovincial conference which was held last fall. I think the question is out of date.

Mr. MANION:

This question can be

passed as an order for a return so far as the Canadian National Railway is concerned, but we have no records of the Canadian Pacific Railway with respect to this matter. I am sure that my hon. friend could get that part of the information by writing to the Canadian Pacific Railway.
