Mr. HANSON (York-Sunbury):
like to have an explanation from the minister. Will he state whether the programme has been thought through, or whether this is in the same stage as the agricultural war prices matter- not to come into effect until the period of transition is over?
Mr. BERTRAND (Laurier); This resolution is to the same effect as the previous one relating to agricultural products, but there are a few changes in it. The amount to be provided is 825 million, and there is a board of three, which has the same power as the board to be etsablished in respect of agricultural products. The changes are just those which are necessary on account of the fisheries in so far as the fisheries differ from agricultural products.
Motion agreed to and the house went into committee, Mr. Bradette in the chair.
Subtopic: PROVISION FOR STABILIZATION, PURCHASE OF STAPLE PRODUCTS AT APPROVED PRICES, ETC.
