Mr. Lome Nystrom (Yorkton-Melville):
Mr. Speaker, my question is directed to the Minister of Agriculture. Of course he is aware that farm prices have been falling on many fronts, that costs are up, and that bankruptcies are up. Also, on the weekend he called for a general tax cut to stimulate the economy. Since he believes in a tax cut, is he ready to recommend to his Cabinet colleagues a cut in federal gasoline taxes on farm fuels, which amount to around 30 cents a gallon? Will he take that recommendation to Cabinet in order to help the farmers and to stimulate the economy of the country in general?
