Mr. DOUGLAS (Weyburn):

We have no quarrel as to whether there is merit in the act, but we are trying to find out what percentage of the producers have availed themselves of its benefits, whether it is working to the best possible advantage, and whether changes might not be made in it before the bill itself comes down that might give the act a greater appeal among the producers of agricultural products. Surely the hon. member can find no quarrel with us for seeking that type of information.
