Mr. Robert Simpson (Churchill):
Mr. Speaker, I have a question for the Minister of Justice in his capacity as the minister responsible for the Wheat Board. With reference to the takeover by Manitoba Pool Elevators of the line elevator system of Federal Grain and the consequent announcement of closure of elevators which is causing great hardship for many farmers, can the minister say whether the Wheat Board is looking into these closures with a view to protection of the farmers concerned?
