Mr. MARLER:

I suppose in that case I

am justified in stating that my hon. friend will vote against any further reduction of duties?

Mr. HOEY:

He will vote for further reductions, believing it will help the industry still further rather than hinder it.

Mr. MARLER:

My hon. friend believes

in a lingering, rather than a sudden death then?

No, not death at all; it is

inspiration.

Well, those are two theoretical words which I have heard little boys using when chasing shadows and rainbows.

Mr. MARLER:

Some hon. gentlemen seem to treat this as a joke. We are playing with human lives in this matter. We have got over the day of chasing rainbows; we are down to facts.

Oh, my hon. friend from

Bow River-the place where all the slaves come from.

The same way with the

Mr. CRERAR:

I dislike interrupting an

hon. member when he is speaking, but my hon. friend is very apprehensive as to the future of the agricultural implement industry in Canada as a result of the reduction in duties brought about by the budget. The cream separator industry in this country has been free for many, many years. Will my hon. friend tell me why, if this industry can be built up without any protection whatever, the plow industry cannot also be built up in the same way where the elements are precisely the same?

Mr. MARLER:

I am really very much

obliged to my distinguished friend for asking me the question. The agricultural implement industry is, I think, subject to a great deal more competition than the other industry which he speaks about.

Mr. MARLER:

But in any event let me

say this to the hon. member for Marquette (Mr. Crerar): I am not particularly picking

out the agricultural implement industry.
