Mr. TUMMON:

If his vote is challenged now has he not got to take an oath? If he is an honest man will he hesitate to sign a document?

Mr. TUMMON:

Supply-Agriculture-Marketing Act

world market of 8-14 cents, it will be seen that the amount received exceeds $8,000,000 considerably.

What do we want to do? Do we want to reduce the price of butter or the price of milk given to the producers who send it to the butter factories? We must move off the market a certain percentage of the milk or we are going to have that reduction. Those who have been producing the five or six per cent of the total milk production and sending it to the cheese factories have for the past three or four years stood the brunt of stabilizing the dairy industry in this country. I consider it is high time that the responsibility should be shifted somewhere else instead of upon those who have been sending their milk to the cheese factories.

Mr. TUMMON:

The fact is that it is not a fair proposition to ask the people who are supplying five or six per cent of the total milk production of this country to stabilize the entire Canadian industry; the responsibility must be put somewhere else, and I congratulate the Minister of Agriculture on his attempt to do this.
