Mr. LALOR:

I believe that the member for Red Deer read from Hansard of this session.

Mr. LALOR:

Mr. Chairman, I must

bow to your ruling. I was merely going to make the statement that I heard an address delivered by an hon. member in this House in which views were expressed entirely opposite to, those expressed by the member for Red Deer to-night. Without mentioning any names, I may say that in the address to which I refer great fault was found with the Minister of Trade and Commerce for not making an attempt to expand the trade of the country and for not employing trade commissioners in the United States. He went on to tell how many trade commissioners were employed in Canada and to argue that this same system should be employed by Canada in the United States with a view to expanding our trade. A few nights ago the hon. member for Red Deer was making a statement in the House, and realizing that I might not quote the address of the member for Marquette I took it over to the whip of the

Agrarian party and asked him to read his leader's views upon the question which the member for Red Deer was discussing-and I may tell you that they were quite different from the views which were being expressed by the member for Red Deer and from the views which that hon. gentleman evidently holds in connection with the matter now under discussion.

Mr. LABOR:

There seems to be a great difference of opinion as to the measure which is before the committee, and that difference of opinion does not prevail on only one side of the House; it is very strongly marked, I observe, in the Agrarian group. The two leaders of the Agrarian group, the member for Marquette and the member for Red Deer, should hold a little conference with a view to seeing that their opinions are somewhat alike upon the great trade questions that come before this House. I hold in my hand a copy of Hansard of February 26, 1921, page 285, in which I find an expression of the views of the Agrarian leader, who said-

Mr. LALOR:

That fee we must invariably pay. Now, what is the judgment of the member for Halifax as to shipments coming this way? Will the American pay that fee, or will they make Canadians pay it, or will we be able to take the same position as the Americans do? If we are able to take the same position, then I do not see any reason why Americans should not pay a fee on their exports into Canada. I must say that I hardly realize what our position would he, whether we would be compelled to pay or not, because we are obliged to import from the United States cotton, coal and so many other commodities that we cannot get along without. Whether we can make them pay that consular fee or not is a question, hut if we can I would be glad to make them pay it.

Mr. LALOR:

Might I tell the hon. member the reason? The wall was so high we could not get -over-the regulations were too severe.
