Mr. PERLEY:

In answering the hon. member the minister referred to the wheat board. Canadian wheat exporters are selling to foreign countries, to the cereal import committee in Britain, for instance. Will this bill guarantee the Canadian exporter against loss? Every day we see advertisements that Canadian wheat is being sold to other countries, and I should like to know if this bill will insure the Canadian exporter of wheat against loss?

Mr. PERLEY:

I should like to impress upon the minister the necessity of raising the quota as soon as possible to ten bushels, because I think the space is available. If he will look up and see what happened to the pool elevators after the restriction was taken off he will see that deliveries to their elevators increased from thirty-five to fifty per cent of all deliveries in just two or three months; therefore I think it is important to have as large a quota as possible in order not to discriminate against that organization.

Mr. PERLEY:

I am glad to see that there is an increase in the expenditure on this railway and the terminal at Churchill. Some of it may be to make up the difference between earnings and the cost, but I think the minister would be well advised to see that the route is kept in order so that when the war is over it will be ready to serve the public. I think it will prove to be one of the great outlets for western Canada, one of the very best and cheapest. We had before the committee on agriculture this year a statement with respect to grain shipped from there. Last year the elevators were full of Canadian wheat board grain, and a great deal of it was shipped out and the capacity filled again. But, as has been pointed out, owing to convoy service now, they cannot use it for shipping grain. I heard the head of one of the largest steamship companies in Britain say a year or so before the war broke out, speaking in Regina to the board of trade with reference to this route, that there was no question in the world that, with the improvements in radio equipment and direction for shipping, that port could be kept open for three months longer than it has been up to the present time and that it would serve as a great route so far as shipping grain to Britain is concerned. The cost would be nearly three to four cents a bushel cheaper and that would be in its favour. But at the present time the chief shipping interests are centred at Fort William and Port Arthur and they would naturally direct a great deal of their shipping there. As an outlet for western Canada it is one of the coming routes. One of the largest shipping concerns in Britain declares that after the war, with the improvements that have been made in radio equipment for directing ships, that port will be available for shipping for three or four months longer in the year. I am glad to see the minister increasing the estimates, and I hope the route will be kept in proper repair so that when the war is over it will be available.

Mr. PERLEY:

Speaking of the need for this type of legislation, is there similar legislation in Great Britain or the United States? Also I would like to know whether the policies of insurance that may be taken out under this legislation will run for a considerable period, say a year or more. Is there anything in the bill limiting the term of the insurance policy? I have discussed this matter with others and I believe that advantage will be taken of this legislation and that it will be of great assistance to an exporter if he can go to a banker and assure him that he has insurance protection under this legislation for a given period, not just for a month or two, but say six months.
