Mr. FULFORD:

Why are limes included in this list? Limes form a part of the diet of the British navy and have done so for one hundred and fifty years. One reason why British sailors are known as "limeys" is the fact that they use so many limes.

Mr. PULEORD:

The pan-American union has just been in session and the vacant seat which has been kept so long for Canada still remains vacant. I know the argument is advanced that it would not be in the interest of Canada as a member of the British commonwealth of nations to be a member of the pan-American union. But at this time I can see no reason why Canada does not take its rightful place in the pan-American union; instead of being derogatory to our position in the British empire I am of the opinion that it would be a distinct advantage for all concerned.

Mr. FULFORD:

I merely want to endorse what the hon. member for Lanark has said. I happen to have the honour of representing

Supply-Agriculture

one of the premier dairy counties of Canada. When the new cheese bonus went into effect last year it was stated that it would not mean more than $2,500 to my county, but if I remember correctly, as a result of this splendid legislation over $32,000 was left with the farmers of the county of Leeds.

_ I wish to commend the minister for increasing the grant by $250,000. I know it is money well spent, and surely it is little enough in the way of a bonus to these farmers who are the most honest, most industrious and least complaining citizens of Canada-I refer to the farmers of eastern Canada and especially to those of eastern Ontario.

May I conclude with the suggestion that, in giving out the bonus, a small part of it should be left with the cheese-maker who has succeeded through hard work in producing cheese of premium quality. To-day the cheese of eastern Canada is second to none in the world.
