Mr. Hansell:

What the minister has told us does not satisfy us and that is why we are going to vote for the amendment to send the bill to the committee where it could have a thorough overhauling. With those words, Mr. Speaker, I will take my seat but I will still declare that the Minister of Agriculture who represents the agricultural policy of the present government is frightened to have this bill go before the farmers and have appear on the record what they really think about it.

Mr. Hansell:

I am very glad to know the relative positions of the Minister of Agriculture (Mr. Harkness) and myself and to learn that he is afraid of me. I must say that I am not afraid of him.

Mr. Hansell:

My hon. friend over here says: "The farmers." He certainly must be frightened of something. The only argument I can think of for not sending this to committee is that it might be delayed a bit. That is no argument. I would rather have the thing delayed a few weeks and have the farmers get what they want than have a weak type of bill such as we have now that does not satisfy anybody. I ask again: what is the minister frightened of?

Mr. Hansell:

The minister does not have to be frightened of me but I suspect he is afraid to refer this bill to the committee on agriculture because there is a fault in the

bill that will be exposed and it will not work out to the advantage of his government. He must be frightened of referring it to the committee; otherwise, if he really wanted to do something for the farmers, he would say, "We will refer it to the committee where the farmers can examine it and make recommendations, where the discussion could be placed on the record and exposed to all hon. members of parliament," but he has not seen fit to do that.
