April 22, 1952 (21st Parliament, 6th Session)

PC

Edmund Davie Fulton

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Fulton:

May I ask a supplementary question with respect to this grading which will be based on the floor price? Will there be any close supervision by the government of the grading methods as a result of the institution of the floor price policy? The minister will appreciate that it means a great deal to a farmer how these grades are applied.

Livestock
Unless there is some supervision, with a floor price of $23.40 in Vancouver a farmer may get a price far below that for the cattle marketed.
