James Garfield Gardiner (Minister of Agriculture)

Liberal

Mr. GARDINER:

I think the list is
larger than the one I have read. Apparently only the ones for which we had statistical information were placed on the list I have. The department has not gone out to promote the organization of the cooperatives. Most of them are set up under provincial charters; sometimes they have been encouraged by provincial promoters of cooperative organization to come under this act. In most instances they have simply written to the department for information; we have sent out the information; and as a result of their obtaining it they have formed control selling agencies.
Resolution reported, read the second time and concurred in. Mr. Gardiner thereupon moved for leave to introduce Bill No. 24, to amend the Agricultural Products Cooperative Marketing Act, 1939.
Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.
