William Moore Benidickson (Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Finance)

Liberal Labour

Mr. Benidickson:

I have spoken to the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre and 83276-183

explained that the record of loans made by the Canadian farm loan board is not classified by type of farm. Accordingly, it would be impossible to answer his question with any exactitude without an examination of more than 8,000 files. I understand it is not his desire that this work be undertaken. I assure him and the house, however, that market gardeners as such are not disqualified for loans under the farm loan act. Under the circumstances I understand that the hon. member is prepared to withdraw his question.
