Hon. Pierre H. Cadieux (Minister of State (Fitness and Amateur Sport) and Minister of State (Youth) and Deputy Leader of the Government in the House of Commons):

Madam Speaker, the hon. member makes the same mistake his colleague made a little while ago.

They dissociate SEED from the Challenge program which in fact has increased over the years, bearing in mind that some of the moneys have been allocated to the high drop-out situation we have in Canada which is absolutely scandalous. It was discovered at that time the drop-out rate was 33 per cent. We know that the most important tool that the students require is a good

education so that they can face the challenges that are upcoming.

This year alone the budget was increased by $5.1 million, preceded by $3 million the year before and $3 million the year before that. Again the moneys have been increased and are increasing. I did fight in cabinet for it and that is why it increased.

Mr. Harvard:

Mr. Speaker, this bill is clear and straightforward. It would provide for a plebiscite for the marketing of barley. Barley growers would be asked if they were in favour of retaining the current marketing mandate of the Canadian Wheat Board for barley.

I brought this bill forward because prairie farmers are frustrated. Without any mandate from producers this government has moved to a continental barley market effective August 1. Farmers feel that this is wrong and that it will undermine the Canadian Wheat Board. Producers feel they should be given the final say in this

matter through a plebiscite and this bill would provide exactly that.
