PEDIGREED HOGS


On the orders of the day:


LIB

Thomas F. Donnelly

Liberal

Mr. T. F. DONNELLY (Willow Bunch):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to ask a question of the government based on an article which appears in this morning's press. In a Canadian Press dispatch I notice that a question was asked in the British House of Commons as to why Canada was buying sixty or seventy pedigreed pigs from Sweden. Mr. Thomas said that all but eight of these pigs were not produced in England. I should like to ask the government if it can tell the house for whom the pigs are being bought, what their pedigrees may be, or any information they may have in that connection.
