William Daum Euler (Minister of Trade and Commerce)

Liberal

Mr. EULER:

This bill provides for the repeal of that part of the wheat board act which gives power to the board to make an initial payment to the producers of wheat, and substitute therefor a paragraph which gives power to the wheat board to make an initial payment of sixty cents a bushel for No. 1 northern, basis Fort William. The participation feature remains in the act. A proper conception of the implications and merits of the bill can, I think, best be obtained in conjunction with certain other legislation which is to be introduced by my colleague the Minister of Agriculture (Mr. Gardiner).
