Mr. PICKEL:

I should like, Mr. Chairman, to add a few words to this discussion. We have figures of the comparative prices of butter in the United States and in Canada, and those figures are very significant. Until 1925 our butter compared very favourably with American butter in regard to price, but in 1925, after the Australian treaty came into force, our butter was sold for much less than the price the commodity brought in the United States. So much was this the case that in the first fifteen days of September, 1926, the American farmer was receiving 26 cents a pound more for his butter than the Canadian farmer was receiving; he was getting 55 cents a pound and the Canadian farmer was getting 29 cents.

Mr. PICKEL:

With grain at 30 cents and middlings at 40 cents, it costs the farmer 40 cents per pound to produce butter, but when the price of grain is much cheaper his cost of production is lower. I will have to support the appropriation asked for.
