Mr. Len Gustafson (Assiniboia):
Madam Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43. Failure on the part of the Minister responsible for the Canadian Wheat Board to announce, on a regular, yearly basis, payments to western farmers with regard to the western grain stabilization and the Canadian Wheat Board payments leaves western farmers with a great deal of uncertainty with respect to their year end business and the operation of their farms. I move, seconded by the Hon. Member for Portage-Marquette (Mr. Mayer):
That this House request the Minister responsible for the Canadian Wheat Board to make regular yearly announcements pertaining to the Canadian Wheat Board payments and the western grain stabilization payments, thereby taking the political manipulation out of the system, by using a reasonable business practice.
