Mr. P. E. Wright (Melfort) moved
for leave to introduce Bill No. 13, to amend the Canadian Wheat Board Act, 1935.
He said: This bill is the same as Bill No. 17 of last session. The only change made by the bill is to insert the words "or Churchill" in the appropriate place in two sections of the act, as underlined. The effect of the change will be to permit producers in the area accessible to the port of Churchill to take advantage of the cheaper freight rates to Churchill, wherever such cheaper rates apply.
Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.
Subtopic: AMENDMENT RESPECTING PAYMENTS TO PRODUCERS IN CHURCHILL AREA
