Mr. MORRISON:

Will the minister tell

us what the expenditure on the coal briquetting plant has been in the past year, and what the department is doing during the coming year in connection with that plant? Are they still co-operating with the governments of Manitoba and Saskatchewan in their experiment?

Mr. MORRISON:

What would the hon.

member recommend doing when the elevator has a shortage? One-quarter of one per cent is a pretty small overage, and if you can find sufficient weighmen throughout the country to weigh as closely as that, you would be a pretty able man.

Mr. MORRISON:

I wish to endorse what the hon. member for Red Reer has just said. In my constituency there are quite a number of farmers who have sons to whom this provision will be quite a benefit. Requests have also been made of me from time to time to

try and get a provision such as this put through whereby they can have access to those lands. I agree that lots of these lands are not of a quality to warrant a man taking them up and making his home there, but as the father is already farming in that part of the country and well established there, this provision will be a good help in maintaining the family and keeping them working together. While it is not for the benefit of outsiders, it is going to be of real help to many residents in that country.

Mr. MORRISON:

There was no increase

in the tariff on farm implements? Well, there was an increased duty on a number of commodities in the interest of the manufacturers. Many of us, as individuals, found ourselves in this position, that we were obliged in our mutual interest to compromise. It was no use putting a man down and out, when his trouble

was largely through no fault of his own, and he had assumed too heavy obligations. There are a number of members in this comer of the House who, I know, compromised with others, rather than put them down and out. This is a very proper step for the government to take. It is not giving any favours: It is a

readjustment of conditions that were brought about largely from the reaction after the war, and I heartily commend the government for the step they are taking.
