The hon. member for Lambton West (Mr. Murphy) is not here, but he spoke to me about a matter which I should like to bring to the attention of the minister. It concerns a disease which is affecting the sugar beets in that hon. member's constituency.
.Speaking on this matter last year he explained that certain of the streams running into lake Huron were filling up at their mouths, causing a flooding of certain areas used for the production of sugar beets. The suggestion was made that something should be done by cooperation between the dominion and provincial governments and the municipalities. Has the minister any report to make on this matter?
