Hon. W. D. EULER (Minister of Trade and Commerce):
Mr. Speaker, on Friday last the right hon. the leader of the opposition (Mr. Bennett) asked for certain information with regard to certain operations of the wheat board in connection with the supplying of seed wheat to the province of Saskatchewan. He made reference then to a car of wheat which had been delivered to a place called Coleville. I have a telegram with regard to that matter which I should like to read to the house. It is as follows:
Referring telephone conversation and reference to Coleville car. This small car of wheat ordered shipped to Coleville by Saskatchewan Department of Agriculture May ninth. Shipment was made May eleventh. We were advised by department this car had been ordered by a rural municipality in error and were instructed night of May twentieth to rebill to Lakehead. Instructions given railway morning May twenty-first and situation immediately dealt with. Accordingly this car arrived at Fort William May thirty-first.
My right hon. friend stated that according to the weekly statement by the wheat board there were apparently some two million bushels of seed wheat still left in the hands of the government.
