Mr. WEIR (Melfort): (Minister of Agriculture)

Conservative (1867-1942)

1. The export of hay from Canada was made subject to licence by order in council P.C. 1966, published in the Canada Gazette August 24, 1934.

2. The provisions of this order in council were rescinded as from Feb. 1, 1935.

3. It seemed evident in August, 1934, that speculators were becoming active in their efforts to contract for hay for export which might result in a serious feed shortage for the farm stock in several areas in Canada without corresponding benefit to the producers. It was believed that order in council P.C. 1966 had accomplished the purpose for which it was intended and it was considered to be no longer necessary to require licences for export hay.

4. Yes. t
