Mr. Cardiff:

Mr. Chairman, I would like to ask the minister a question. Did anybody appointed to that drafting committee have any knowledge of farming whatsoever?

Mr. L. E. Cardiff (Huron):

Mr. Speaker, due to the fact that the house has been refused the opportunity to debate the increase in the price of steel, would the Prime Minister use his very important office to stop the increase in price, in the same way President Kennedy did in the United States about two years ago, which was the act of a statesman? I would ask the Prime Minister to act accordingly without delay.

Mr. Cardiff:

Mr. Chairman, I think there is too much regimentation in this clause with respect to the feed mills which operate to the advantage of farmers. I believe the minister is going much too far in trying to bring these mills under the terms of the bill. Nobody likes to be told what they have to do or what they cannot do. Most of these feed mills have seed plants in them, and in the spring season a lot of the seed cleaning has to be done between six o'clock at night and two or three o'clock in the morning. This rush period lasts for about two or three weeks. Perhaps the hours can be averaged over the year but the fact remains that there is too much regimentation. I think the minister should accept the amendment.

Amendment (Mr. Loney) negatived: yeas, 20; nays 71.
