Mr. GARDINER:

I am not going to take so long to make my points as my right hon. friend took, but that was the point he made.

Mr. BENNETT; It was not the point.

What is the point of order to which the hon. member for Calgary West (Mr. Bennett) is addressing himself, I should like to ask, Mr. Speaker?

Mr. GARDINER:

Mr. Speaker, the hon. gentleman argued a few moments ago that the paying of 87| cents a bushel on wheat under conditions where only one-fifth of the wheat of Canada is consumed in Canada meant the compelling of the payment with respect to the other four-fifths by those who were consuming that particular commodity in Canada of anywhere from 5 to 10 cents a bushel; or he indicated that if it were 5 cents a bushel it would be a certain amount, if it were 10 cents a bushel it would be a certain amount, and this was assistance which was going to the farmers of Canada at the expense of all the population. He pointed over to this side of the house-I do not know Why, because there are members from western Canada sitting on the other side-and called the attention of the house to the fact that western members were making certain requests in spite of the fact that they were getting this assistance from the people of Canada through the government of Canada. Well, if there was any point at all in placing an argument of that kind before the house it was to try to convince hon. members that some consideration was being given to the farmers in addition to the consideration which is being given to people in other parts of this dominion. I suggest to the hon. gentleman, when he speaks of butter coming in from Australia, that the government of Canada for years has been subsidizing boats to bring butter from Australia into Canada to compete with our farmers. I suggest to him also that the government of Canada, whether Liberal or Conservative, has since the time of confederation been assisting other lines of industry. I am standing in my place to-day not for the purpose of objecting to the assistance that has been given, but for the purpose of pointing out to the leader of the opposition that when he contends that agriculture is getting more consideration than some other lines of industry in this country-
