Mr. REID:

I could discuss barley, too.
You tried to put that over last year, but it was no good. It shows you know very little about poultry business when you start talking about barley. Right now I am talking about something I know something about.
I believe an explanation is due British Columbia indicating why that province is included in the bill. If it is included because it is a wheat producing province, the answer is that we produce only 1,000,000 bushels, and when we compare that small output with an output of 20,000,000 bushels from another province it seems strange that that province should be left out while we are included. Only a few days ago we were complaining about being excluded from a bill, but to-day my complaint is that we are being included and other provinces are being left out. I should like an explanation from the Prime Minister.
