Mr. A. M. CARMICHAEL (Kindersley):
May I ask another question of the minister before the debate is adjourned? In the bill it is mentioned that the loan provisions shall come into effect when royal assent is posted in the Canada Gazette. We are assuming royal assent will be given before we adjourn on Wednesday next. I wonder whether the minister between now and Monday, if he cannot do so now, could advise us when the bill is likely to come into operation. The reason I ask the question is that I have had a number of letters from farmers of my constituency who are very anxious to know when the bill will come into operation in Saskatchewan and what the procedure will be to make application for a loan. If the minister cannot answer that now, possibly between to-night and Monday he might give it consideration and be able to tell us on Monday when the bill will be in operation.
