On the order for motions:
Mr. P. A. SEGUI.N (Translation) (L'As-somption-Montcalm): Mr. Speaker, I have the honour to lay on the table of the house resolutions from the municipal councils of various parishes of the riding of L'Assomp-tion-Montcalm, which I have the privilege to represent, requesting the abolition of the 6 per cent sales tax on vegetables canned by the farmers' cooperative societies carrying on no business other than the marketing of the products of their members.
It is natural that, in these difficult times, the farming class should receive from the government all possible assistance. It is highly important that this tax on farm products be removed.
These various resolutions have been adopted by the municipal councils of the parishes of
St. Paul l'Ermite, Lachenaie, St. Roch de l'Achigan, Sainte-Marie-Salomee, Chertsey and St. Donat. They are addressed to the government, to the ministers and to the members of the House of Commons.
