Liberal

Mr. DUNNING:

Only a small amount, out of the proceeds of the first crop, which as hon. members know was non-existent over most of the area in which the seed was advanced. We expect to receive the necessary information from both provinces to enable us to give our guarantee shortly, and while I will not state positively that the amounts will be those I have just given, I am reasonably certain that if there is any variation the amounts will be less than those I have stated.
As to acreage affected, I am sorry I cannot give that information. That is of course provincial information. We may have it somewhere in our records, but I have not it before me.
