June 22, 1925

Mr. CALDWELL:

I presume that this legislation is intended to supplement the present farm loan acts of the different provinces. I would point out however that there are provinces that have no farm loan aots or, if they have such acts, they will not be able to take advantage of this measure.

Mr. CALDWELL:

I should like the minister to consider, when his bill is before the House, the advisability of making provision for rural credits in those provinces where the system is not in force, for these provinces

certainly need such legislation much more than those parts of the Dominion which have rural credits legislation in force.

Resolution reported, read the second time and concurred in. Mr. Robb thereupon moved for leave to introduce Bill No. 237 to authorize advances to assist agriculture by providing for long-term farm loans.

Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.

Mr. CALDWELL:

Does the minister not

think that this section should stand until we have disposed of section 21? There must be fourteen days between nomination day and polling day, and if the list is to be presented to the candidate on nomination day the revising officer would have to complete his work more than twelve days before polling day.
