Right Hon. J. G. Diefenbaker (Prince Albert):
Mr. Speaker, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity under the provisions of Standing Order 43.
Having regard to the fact that although during the past weeks wheat has been selling out of Vancouver and Thunder Bay at between $4.50 and $4.70 a bushel, and that the initial price for wheat for the farmer at the farm gate is only $2.75,1 move, seconded by the hon. member for Saskatoon-Biggar (Mr. Hnatyshyn):
That this House requests the initial price of No. 1 and No. 2 wheat be increased immediately by at least 50 cents a bushel.
Subtopic: REQUEST FOR INCREASE IN INITIAL PRICE OF NO. I AND NO. 2 WHEAT-MOTION UNDER S.O. 43
