James Garfield Gardiner (Minister of Agriculture)

Liberal

Mr. Gardiner:

The government not only gave out the information, but I read it very carefully from my place in the house. If the hon. member will refer to Hansard for this session he will find that at the time I announced the floor price for butter for the coming year as 58 cents, I pointed out clearly, and emphasized the fact that there had not been any shortage of butter, and there was not any shortage on the first of April of this year. We had approximately 10 million pounds.
