Mr. ROBERT FAIR (Battle River):
Mr. Speaker, I should like to direct a question to the government based on a news report in this morning's paper. It is a dispatch from Washington, as follows:
Washington, March 17.-Moved to militant action by reports of imminent food shortages, the United States Senate overrode war department protests to-day to pass, 50 to 24, a bill denying any more agricultural workers to the armed forces.
Subtopic: ACTION IN UNITED STATES SENATE TO DENY AGRICULTURAL WORKERS TO THE ARMED FORCES
