Mr. GRAYDON:

Quite true, they have health officers there, but I think the dominion government might well take it into consideration, that before they issue permits they should have the consent and approval of the local board of health.

Mr. SENN:

What proportion of this vote is to be devoted to the prevention of bovine tuberculosis? Also, what restricted areas are being tested this year; how many of them are partly completed, and how many are new?

Mr. GARDINER:

The amount of compensation which is here provided for is $390,000, but in addition there is $400,000 in the supplementary estimates, which brings the amount close to $790,000. It is much higher than any previous vote, and is for compensation only.

Mr. GARDINER:

It covers all Canada, of course; right across Canada, wherever this is being done. Prior to last year Alberta had not taken advantage of it, but now all provinces have done so.

Mr. SENN:

I want to find out about one or two areas which I know of, which have voted on the matter and voted favourably towards it. Does the minister contemplate doing the work in these areas this year? How many areas have made applications that have been tested; how many does the minister contemplate dealing with this year, and which ones?

Mr. GARDINER:

Perhaps the hon. member would specify the area he has in mind. There is quite a'long list. I may be able to tell him from the list I have before me.

Mr. GARDINER:

The order of precedence in which they stand at the moment is: Lanark county, Simcoe county, the townships of Rama and Mara in Ontario county, Waterloo county, Hastings county, Grey county, Norfolk county, Essex county, Haldimand county, Wentworth county, Lennox-Addington county, Brant county and Dufferin county. Those are in Ontario; that is the order in which they stand at present.

Mr. THOMPSON:

What order is followed in doing the testing in the different counties? Is it according to their precedence in making their application, or is there any patronage in connection with it?

Mr. GARDINER:

What they do usually is to work in blocks, and the area which is already established is widened. That is the natural thing to do, because when an area is established it is much easier to work from that than it is to start in a new county. For example, for many years I was right on the boundary line of an area in western Canada, and I found difficulty in keeping any cattle that I had, separated from the cattle across the road. Naturally, in order to avoid that kind of thing being accentuated, the tendency is to spread out the area you are working in. But apart from that it would be pretty much in the order in which the applications are made.

The reason I asked that question was this. The county of Lanark stood at the head.

Mr. THOMPSON:

Yes, they are working there now. It is probably two years since a canvass was made of that county to get the farmers to sign up. That was done and they made the application. There appeared in a local paper this spring a notice that, through the influence of the defeated candidate in Lanark county, Lanark county was going to be cleaned up, tested for tuberculosis.

Mr. THOMPSON:

It appeared in all th*

papers that, through the influence of my opponent, who no doubt had the patronage i* Lanark county, that county was being tested. I want to know whether or not the man who has the patronage of the riding has something to do with the testing business or having the tests made.

Mr. GARDINER:

I can assure the hon. member for Lanark that his opponent did not ask me to take any action in connection with the matter, and I am assured by the officials that they started in Lanark absolutely on their own initiative.

Mr. GARDINER:

I assume that, if there were any patronage, it would probably have come by the course the hon. member has mentioned, that an attempt would have been made in that direction.
