Liberal

Mr. MITCHELL:

I think my hon. friend
will agree that twenty-three members is a large number for an advisory council. What we have endeavoured to do is to go to the national organizations. It so happens that the farmers' organization that was consulted was a national organization, and they made that appointment. If all these industries were given representation on a reasonable basis you would probably have an advisory council bigger than this House of Commons, which would make its functioning almost impossible.
