Ernest Edward Perley

National Government

Mr. E. E. PERLEY (Qu'Appelle):

Is the minister aware that there will be a very coip-siderable decrease in the production, of hogs in western Canada? Only to-day I had a letter from one farmer who raised two hundred and fifty hogs last year and who will not raise more than one hundred this year. The farmers are concerned about the bonus paid on A-l and B-l grades of hogs. Will the minister say whether he is considering increasing the bonus to what it was before it was reduced last year, and making it uniform throughout Canada, in order to encourage the production of hogs this year?
