Mr. A. M. CARMICHAEL (KindeTsley):

I have a question to ask, which perhaps might properly be answered by the Minister of Agriculture. I have here a letter from the secretary of the rural municipality of Kindersley in regard to the borrowing of money from the banks for taking care of spring relief, buying seed, feed and tractor fuel.
