Why is there a difference in interpretation between this government and the government of the province of Quebec? That is what we would like to know.

Mr. MITCHELL:

I do not very often speak in this way, but the fact is that these questions are being asked for purely political reasons and no other.

SPECIAL PRIVILEGE TO FARMERS TINDER REGULATIONS


On the orders of the day: Mr. JEAN-FRANCOIS POULIOT (Temis-couata): May I ask the Minister of Labour if he informed by letter or otherwise the premier of Quebec that the farmers were protected under the regulations?


LIB

Humphrey Mitchell (Minister of Labour)

Liberal

Hon. HUMPHREY MITCHELL (Minister of Labour):

I can answer the hon. member for Temiscouata only as I answered the hon. member for Lake Centre (Mr. Diefenbaker). There is no difference whatsoever in any province in Canada. The same protection to the agriculture industry is being given to every province in Canada, irrespective of whether it is east or west.

Jean-François Pouliot

Mr. POULIOT:

I do not deny that. But the minister has not answered my question. He may have written the same letter to different premiers. But, did he not write to the premier of Quebec stating that farmers were protected under the regulations?

Mr. MITCHELL:

I would say this, that the protection given to agriculture in this dominion is probably better than in any other country of the united nations.
