Mi. MO PHERW ELL:

The brown-tail

moth attacks the apples.

Mr. HANSON - The hon. gentleman did not pay attention to what I said. Now that the brown-tail moth is no longer with us, and the spruce bud-worm has worked out his usefulness or its uselessness, what functions does the laboratory perform? Along what line of endeavour are they working. How large is the staff, and how much money has been spent?

Mr. MOTHER WELL:

The question is a proper one for discussion. This winter I have discussed the matter fully with my officers, somewhat along the line indicated by my hon. friend, and I was forced to the conclusion that it would be very much like cruelty to deprive the people in that district of the advantages they get from this station. I do not know that we should have too much sentiment in matters of this kind, but, as one who has pioneered in the West, I do not feel just now like taking the institution away from them. In my opinion the policy of development in the West has suggested a reaching out towards the setting sun.

Mr. MOTHERW ELL:

These details are to be found at page A-32 of the Auditor General s Report for 1922-3. One of the primary purposes of getting that shipment over was to introduce some new Tamworth blood among our various herds of Tamworth pigs, especially throughout Ontario and the West. This type is looked upon as an A1 bacon breed. There is a good deal of prejudice against it because

of its long nose and light shoulders, but these features are not disadvantages but advantages when it comes to raising bacon hogs. In this country there has been so much inbreeding for the want of new blood by importation, that it was thought advisable to get a number of these animals over. We brought over not only hogs, but a number of sheep and cattle as well to replenish the blood of the various herds throughout Canada, surely a most proper expenditure.
