Mr. P. E. Wright (Melfort):
I should like to direct a question to the Minister of Justice, of which I have given him notice. Will the minister have an immediate investigation made under the Combines Investigation Act as to, first, whether there was collusion, understanding or agreement among firms engaged in the packing industry in bringing about the drastic reduction of 25 per cent in hog prices between July and October of this year? And, second, was there collusion, understanding or agreement among these firms preventing or delaying those declines being reflected in lower prices to the consumer?
Subtopic: PACKING INDUSTRY
Sub-subtopic: REQUEST FOR INVESTIGATION OF POSSIBLE COLLUSION, ETC.
