Like the hon. member for Qu'Appelle (Mr. Perley) I deplore the lateness of the date on which this legislation is being brought down, in view of the fact that in some parts of the west farmers will be on the land within the next week or ten days. To discuss this legislation thoroughly might take some time, but anyone seeking information will be accused of holding up seed grain for the prairies. Surely we have known since last fall, and ever since this house met in
