This letter indicates that
effective immediately the prices of parts necessary for duty free farm tractors will be increased 33i per cent. The letter states that this increase in price is made necessary on account of duty now being paid on these parts. Could the minister advise whether there has been any increase in the duty on parts necessary for duty free tractors? If
there has not been any increase, will the government take some action in regard to this increase in the price of parts which are so important to the farmers of western Canada?
Hon. CHARLES A. DUNNING (Minister of Finance): I know of no increase in duties whatsoever. If my hon. friend would place his question upon the order paper I would have a better chance than I have at the moment of answering accurately the latter part of his question.
