Richard Bedford Bennett (Prime Minister; Minister of Finance and Receiver General; President of the Privy Council; Secretary of State for External Affairs)

Conservative (1867-1942)

We have endeavoured to develop a seed corn business in this country, but where it becomes necessary or advisable to change the seed a refund of the duty is made.
