Mr. HALBERT:

The hon. member said

a few minutes ago that if the farmers bought away from home what they could produce at home for themselves, they would soon land in the poorhouse. Now is it not a fact that over ninety per cent of the farmers to-day are buying their butter instead of making it at home, because they can get it cheaper? It works the same way with implements or anything else.

Mr. HALBERT:

This is a special committee, I am not speaking of the standing committees. 'The group in question is overrepresented on the standing committees of the House. As the right hon. leader of the opposition has said, if these thirteen members have left this party they are not entitled to a representation of more than three. However I, as one of the four Progressive members named would be perfectly satisfied to be left off this committee, but we want the actual facts to be thoroughly understood.

Mr. JOS. T. SHAW (West Calgary): I have listened with some interest to the politically-minded member for North Ontario (Mr. Halbert). He thinks that if people get together for the purpose of endeavouring to secure what they deem to be their proper representation for committee purposes that consequently there must be a political group, that the group must have a leader, and that they must have all the attributes of a new party such as the one that he belongs to.
