Hon. Paul Martineau (Ponliac-Temisca-mingue):
Mr. Speaker, I should like to address a question to the Acting Prime Minister. In view of the continuing drought which is bringing about a desperate situation for farmers situated in widely scattered parts of both Ontario and Quebec, particularly among the farmers of the Ottawa Valley, and which may also bring about higher food prices, will the Minister state whether the Government has considered convening an emergency conference of representatives of the two provincial Governments, the Federal Government and farmers' associations to discuss this important matter?
