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. R. H. HALBERT (North Ontario):

As one of the committee who at the commencement of the session struck the standing committees of the House, I wish to say just a word lest a wrong impression may have gone forth from what has already been said. It will be noted that those who include themselves in the group numbering thirteen have always been on the standing committees since the commencement of this parliament. No objection was taken when ten out of the thirteen were placed on the Banking and Commerce committee, representing the Progress sives. If they have formed a separate group I would like to know who the leader is, and I would like to know what their name or designation is. Moreover, they are occupying Progressive seats in the House. I simply rose to explain, as one who was on the striking committee, that the group of thirteen is overrepresented because of its members being counted as still within the Progressive group for the purposes of the standing committees of the House.
