Mr. J. H. BLACKMORE (Lethbridge):

I should like to ask the Minister of Agriculture two questions. Has he been informed of the announcement that the Canadian Pacific Railway Company intends to sell in Wisconsin, United States, its large herd of 250 holstein cattle from the company's farm at Strathmore, Alberta? If so, will the minister tell the house what the government has done to retain these valuable dairy cattle in Canada?

Hon. J. G. GARDINER (Minister of Agriculture):

I have no information with

regard to the matter other than what has been contained in the press. I have seen a notice there to the effect that the Canadian

Labour Conditions

Pacific Railway Company were selling their herd. So far as I know there is no restriction on selling breeding cattle in the United States or on their selling cattle in Canada.

QUESTION OP CONSIDERATION OP ESTIMATES BY SPECIAL COMMITTEE

National Government

Mr. GORDON GRAYDON (Leader of the Opposition):

Speaking in the house on

January 29 the Prime Minister made reference to the consideration which the government has been giving to the appointment of a committee on estimates. I think it would be the desire of the members of the house generally to scrutinize in greater detail the estimates brought down this year by the government and to avoid a repetition of what occurred at the conclusion of the last session. I should be very glad to have the Prime Minister indicate to the house what policy the government intends to pursue with respect to effecting a closer audit by the members of the house of these estimated annual expenditures.

Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Prime Minister):

As a matter of fact I have been waiting until the estimates were tabled to have a word with my hon. friend and the leaders of other groups with respect to the possibility of referring the estimates, either in part or in whole, to a committee or committees. I expect that the estimates will be tabled immediately after the conclusion of this debate, which I hope may be to-morrow night. In that event I shall be glad to have a meeting with my hon. friends with respect to this matter.

Mr. CLARENCE GILLIS (Cape Breton South):

I should like to direct a question to the Prime Minister in connection with certain advertisements which are appearing in nearly all the Canadian papers. I bring this matter to his attention because of his statement on Friday last that henceforth the national war labour board will be in the nature of an

industrial court, and the protest made by the Minister of Labour (Mr. Mitchell) against my referring to the steel dispute during my speech on February 4. I should like to draw the attention of the house to the full-page advertisement appearing in the daily press of Canada and published by the Steel Company of Canada, denouncing the organized steel workers and accusing them of the grave crime of treason. I wish to protest against this dirty and provocative advertising-

Mr. GILLIS:

Does the Prime Minister think that advertising of this kind tends to a peaceful solution of the dispute now being adjudicated upon by the war labour board?
