Mr. Lome Nystrom (Yorkton-Melville):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43. Statistics Canada has just reported that farm cash receipts have dropped by some 31 per cent this January over January of last year, and since this is only the first blow of what is shaping up as a devastating income year for the farmers of this country, I would move, seconded by the hon. member for Sault Ste. Marie:
That this House direct the government to announce programs to halt the continuing slide in farm income.
