May 4, 1939 (18th Parliament, 4th Session)


James Garfield Gardiner (Minister of Agriculture)



No. The discussion last night took place with a group of half a dozen members who came over as a result of this understanding by the whips. Bill No. 82 does not come into effect immediately; it is the one which will come into effect by proclamation. It concerns a matter somewhat different from that dealt with in bills 83 and 63. I do not think it would interfere in any way with proper discussion to take Bill 82 first. The other bill, No. 89, has no connection with wheat; it has to do with the marketing of agricultural products generally other than wheat. It was thought that we might have bills 82 and 89 go through the second reading stage and into committee, and have whatever information is required by hon. members given at that stage, and then when other hon. members have had more time to read over the two bills distributed

Cooperative Wheat Marketing
last night, Nos. 63 and 83, which cover completely this question which has been under discussion for some considerable time, we could go into full discussion of the whole wheat question on these two bills.
