Just a short time ago I asked the last speaker a question in what I thought was a very gentlemanly manner, but he answered me in such an uncalled for way that it calls for a speech on my part, and I did not intend to make a speech. The hon. member introduced the tariff element into this discussion. Possibly that has not so much bearing on the Natural Products Marketing Act as we would like it to have, but it was mentioned by the hon. member for Dufferin-Simcoe (Mr. Rowe), the hon. member for Melville (Mr. Motherwell) and the hon. member for Willow Bunch (Mr. Donnelly). I asked the last speaker whether he thought that by lowering the tariff on all the items in the schedule we would restore our lost markets and find new markets for our wheat. When I asked that question the hon. member for Willow Bunch said I did not know what I was talking about.
