On Monday the minister made a statement that the price of oats and barley was to be raised, and he said, as reported at page 1408 of Hansard:
Feeders, on the other hand, will be protected against any important increase in costs of the oats and barley they buy by appropriate subsidies.
I instance the case of a farmer out west who could sell his oats and barley at these increased prices but preferred to feed it to hogs. Will he be entitled to the subsidy? If not, why not?
