Mr. E. E. PERLEY (Qu'Appelle):
Can the Minister of Agriculture make a statement to the house so that the people of western Canada, and particularly the farmers, may know what steps are being taken to meet the very serious situation regarding farm and harvest labour? I am moved to make this inquiry because of the number of letters I am receiving which indicate that the farmers are seriously worried about the matter. What cooperation is being given by the various war services? What is being done?
