Mr. Forbes:

Before you proceed I should like to ask a supplementary question on the same subject. Let us assume that the farmer is paying $1.25 per acre for crop insurance to the province of Manitoba, on which the federal government contributes 20 per cent and half the administration charges. What percentage of that premium is the federal government going to charge for reinsurance? That is the question.

Mr. Forbes:

My understanding is that out of the premiums the farmers pay to the province, the province would in turn contribute 25 per cent of the premium to the federal government for reinsurance.

Mr. Forbes:

I am using the actual figures that have been submitted from my own area in Manitoba. If the cost of crop insurance were $1.25 per acre, and you already contribute 20 per cent of that as well as paying half of the administrative costs, what the farmer wants to know is, that he is paying the province $1.25 per acre and what percentage of that is the federal government getting for reinsurance? I think this is important, if we are going to sell crop insurance to the farmers across the country. They want to know what it will cost provincially and federally.

Mr. Forbes:

Mr. Chairman, may I ask the minister one question for clarification. Can a farmer who has obtained the maximum Farm Credit Corporation loan of $55,000 and also a farm improvement loan of $15,000 be eligible for a further $15,000 loan as a member of a syndicate under this act?

Mr. Forbes:

I hope the minister realizes that this is a total amount of $85,000, which is a considerable amount of credit for any one individual.
