Mr. DDGUAY (Translation):

Mr. Speaker might I ask a question?

Mr. BERTRAND (Translation); I have asked the Speaker to show some indulgence because it is the first time I address the house and I would prefer not to be interrupted to-day. In future debates we shall have the opportunity of broaching other questions; I shall then feel more at ease and shall answer hon. members.

Mr. DEPUTY SPEAKER (Translation); One may put questions only with the consent of the member who is addressing the house.

Mr. BERTRAND (Translation); At the special session held in September, the Conservative party increased the tariff, gave extensive powers to the Minister of National Revenue and had $20,000,000 voted for the unemployed. However, this did not help the farmers, the tariff did not prevent the falling off in the price of their products and they do not even obtain the pre-war prices-that of 1913-for the products they are forced to sell, while the price of articles they are forced to purchase, such as farm implements and other commodities of life which they do not produce, are much higher.

With your consent, sir, I wish to have placed in Hansard a comparative schedule, based upon the statistics of 1930, with reference to prices of a few products sold by the Canadian farmers and also prices that they are forced to pay for certain farm implements.

In 1913, the Canadian farmer paid for a six-foot mowing machine, $43.50; in 1930, $96.50; a six-foot binding machine, $102 in 1913; in 1930, $225.50; a six-foot hay loader $60, in 1913; in 1930, $122; 15 discs seed drill, $6S in 1913; in 1930, $166.
