Mr. G. T. Purdy (Colchesier-Hanis):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to direct a question to the Minister of Agriculture. Before I do so, however, I should like, on behalf of the farmers in my constituency specifically and in Nova Scotia generally, to thank him for the announcement he has just made in connection with freight rates on feed grain. My question is this. Are studies going forward with a view to extending the general provisions of the Maritime Marshland Rehabilitation Act to the interval land in our numerous river valleys?

Mr. G. T. Purdy (Colchesier-Hanis):

I

have a question to ask the Minister of Finance. On what date, for what reasons, and on whose authority was the Canadian National Railways station at Denmark, Colchester county, Nova Scotia, closed?

The second part of my question is this. In considering representations made and to be made for the reopening of this station, would the election of a member opposed to the present administration have beneficial effects?

Mr. Purdy:

I just want to say a word on item 471 as to the railway employees and old employees on the Intercolonial Railway, whereby we are bringing their pensions up to $30. That is not good enough for this day and age. I would ask the minister next year please to take under consideration increasing this vote to bring the pensions of those retired intercolonial railway men up to a little bit more than $30 and at the same time to try to see if he cannot bring their widows under the provisions of this fund.
