Mr. F. WELLINGTON HAY (North Perth):

I see the Minister of National

Revenue is in his seat. As I represent a section of the province of Ontario in which a number of people are interested in the manufacture of furniture, I would like to ask if the minister or his department is aware that very large shipments of American furniture are coming into Canada, and have been for some ;onsiderable time, and if there is not anything ,hat the minister can do to assist those who ire engaged in that industry in Canada by applying either the dumping clause or some other clause.

Mr. F. WELLINGTON HAY (North Perth):

The Acting Minister of Immigration and Colonization (Mr. Stewart, Edmonton) is in his place, and I would like to direct his attention to two advertisements appearing in The Canadian Gazette, London and Montreal, Thursday, March 20, 1930:

Wanted in Canada, experienced farm families; five hundred British families with farm experience. Assured places on Canadian farms in well settled districts. Wages and houses.

And further:

Single men. farm situations vacant-until filled-for 2,000 able-bodied single men. Wages, with bed and board.

That is an advertisement by the Canadian Pacific Railway. Then, on the back of the same periodical is an article sponsored by the Canadian National Railways' Colonization Service. It says:

The Canadian National Railways' Colonization Service advises and assists settlers before they leave Great Britain, meets them on arrival in Canada and places them in farm employment. It also locates farms for those in a position to begin farming for themselves and helps them to make a start.

May I ask for a statement from the minister in reference to these quotations, after the general discussion we had in the house during last session.
