Mr. ROSS (St. Paul's):

And what do we pay for lobster? We pay a dollar a pound, or somewhere in that vicinity. Can we not get lobster cheaper than that? What is the reason for the spread beween two cents and twenty cents on a pound of halibut or haddock? The people of Ontario do not receive any assistance from the dominion government so far as fisheries are concerned,

Supply-Fisheries-Administration
and we would like to be told why the fishermen do not receive a better price for their fish.
At one o'clock the committee took recess.
The committee resumed at three o'clock.
