James Garfield Gardiner (Minister of Agriculture)

Liberal

Mr. GARDINER:

All the feed and fodder was purchased by the provincial government, but payment was made by the federal government, in the relief areas of the west. This is to provide for feed and fodder relief in the province of Saskatchewan, purchased in 1937-38 but not distributed until after March 31, 1938. Therefore, under our agreement at that time we were not able to make that payment at that time, and the amount had to be voted during this past year in order to make the payment, and the agreement extended.
