Mr. P. E. Wright (Melfort) moved
for leave to introduce Bill No. 17, to amend the Canadian Wheat Board Act, 1935.
He said: The only change made by this bill is to insert the words "or Churchill" in the appropriate place in two sections of the act, as underlined in the bill. The effect of this change will be to permit producers in the area accessible to the port of Churchill to get the advantage of the cheaper freight rate to Churchill, wherever such cheaper rates apply.
Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.
Subtopic: AMENDMENT RESPECTING PAYMENTS TO PRODUCERS IN CHURCHILL AREA
