Mr. JONES:

What, if anything, was said by the Minister of Public Works during an interview in February last with Premier Veniot, of New Brunswick, which would justify the latter in saying that he was persuaded that the federal government would take over the wharves on the St. John river as reported in the Daily Telegraph on 24th February last?

Mr. G. B. JONES (Royal) :

I rise to support the resolution proposed by the hon. member for Victoria and Carleton. We lost our American market because of the American tariff put into effect last year, and therefore I think the Government should give our potato growers every assistance. Formerly we had a very good market in Quebec and Ontario, but the excessive freight rates from the maritime provinces have cut off that market, and last year our farmers had to feed their cows large quantities of potatoes left on their hands. The section I represent is largely devoted to dairying, and I think everyone knows that potato feed does not conduce to milk production. Consequently the farmers in the constituency of Royal have met with very severe losses. I hope the Government will see fit to do something to meet the situation, which has been so well put before the House by the hon. member for Victoria and Carleton and others who have spoken in support of his resolution.
