Mr. J. A. CLARK (Vancouver-Burrard):
On March 6 I drew the attention of the government to a situation which exists with regard to the importation of eggs, and at 1hat time Your Honour was good enough to say that that might serve as a notice. I may say that no notice has been taken of it, but since that time I have received notice of the importation of eggs from the United States during the month of February, the importation having mounted from 22,673 dozen in February, 1929, to 1,060,922 dozen in February, 1930. I consider, Mr. Speaker, that this is a matter of urgent public importance, and I request that the government do take some notice of it, and give the house some assurance that it is being dealt with, because throughout the year 1929 the importation of eggs amounted to 658,164 dozen.
