I wish to inform the house of the total prices realized by producers prior to the deduction of the 1 per cent Prairie Farm Assistance Act levy, on their deliveries of some of the more important grades of wheat. The farmers will receive a total per bushel, basis in store at the lakehead or Vancouver, as follows:
$1.98709 for No. 1 northern,
1.96117 for No. 2 northern,
1.91666 for No. 3 northern,
1.87758 for No. 4 northern, and
1.82677 for No. 5 wheat.
The prices realized on Durum grades total as follows:
$2.13402 for No. 1 C.W. Amber Durum,
2.10509 for No. 2, and
2.04954 for No. 3.
Congratulations are due to all concerned in the growing, handling, grading, transporting and selling of wheat for their contribution to a most successful marketing year. I would like to pay particular tribute to the Canadian Wheat Board, which so fully justified the faith placed in it by parliament last year when the powers of the board were made permanent.
