Mr. G. W. KYTE (Richmond):
I desire to direct the attention of the Minister of Trade and Commerce to this telegram which I received yesterday evening:
Not- a bag of salt is available on south shore of Island and fishermen compelled to tie up boats unless something done immediately; say situation desperate at Gabarus, Louis-burg, Forchu.
Has the minister been able, since the matter was brought to his attention some months ago, to make any arrangements for the importation of salt into Nova Scotia?
Subtopic: SALT FOR FISH CURING.
