Mr. M. J. COLDWELL (Rosetown-Biggar):
Mr. Speaker, I do not suppose the discussion of this bill will be protracted. I listened with a great deal of interest to the explanation given by the minister, and possibly, if the condition which we face in the wheat-producing areas were not something of an emergency condition, the arguments which he advanced would be much more valid and much more acceptable. The difficulty is-I am not going to discuss the price, because we shall come to that a little later; but since he mentioned it, may I say this-that what we call the initial price, with the huge world surplus which is piling up and in sight at the end of July, is in all probability likely to be also the maximum price.
