Hon. J. A. MacKINNON (Minister of Trade and Commerce):
I have been getting letters too, and I have been getting letters from other members of the house about the same matter. The difficulty is a physical one. I received assurances earlier that distribution of these cheques would begin within a very few days, and I gave that information to the house. Very recently I had occasion to give definite notification to the wheat board that, if necessary, increased staff must be obtained and, if necessary, increased quarters must be acquired in order to have these cheques issued. Cheques may be on the way now. I have done everything in my power to urge the wheat board to get these cheques out just as soon as possible, and I believe they will be out very shortly.
