that fact, but my protest now is that the result has not been sufficiently clear or unanimous to give some guide to this committee. We are having to-day a discussion which would be proper before a standing committee of the House but which certainly is out of place in this chamber. Is it right and reasonable that men who have no technical knowledge of these matters shoull be asked to spend their time at this stage of the session listening to a lengthy technical debate? If is not right, and it seems to me that the more paternalistic legislation we put on the statute books the more we shall be impelled or asked to enact.

There are no people in the world who are more likely in the long run to suffer than farmers of the country by interference with the rights of private property.
