Harry James Barber

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. BARBER:

The federal government, through the Department of Agriculture or the Department of Trade and Commerce, might however be of great help, because when we talk about a surplus, that includes a large number of by-products which are for export only, a very small quantity being used in the province. I refer to such commodities as condensed milk, milk powder, casein and a good many other by-products which are there to-day and cannot be disposed of. That is a problem which in my opinion is up to the federal government. It is for the departments here to assist these people in marketing their products.
