Mr. A. M. NICHOLSON (Mackenzie):
Mr. Speaker. I had intended to ask a question of the Minister of Labour, but in his absence perhaps the Minister of Agriculture might answer.
In view of the fact that dominion contributions for relief to the provinces are being discontinued on March 31, what responsibility will the federal government take for supplying food to the northern settlers in Saskatchewan who are being reestablished under a joint dominion-provincial arrangement, in the event that the province cannot care for these settlers? What announcement, if any, has been made by the Saskatchewan government in connection with supplying relief after March 31?
