I anticipated that possibly the hon. gentleman might suggest some such question, and in communicating with the High Commissioner during the progress of the conference it was pointed out that our Department of Trade and Commerce had verv complete figures with respect to Canada and that the League of Nations gathered certain statistics at Geneva and the International Institute of Agriculture at Rome. The High Commissioner uses these words in answer to my inquiry :
The setting up of a special bureau for wheat lending special importance to wheat problems. It does not interfere with good work of office at Geneva or International Institute of Agriculture at Rome, both of which will be of great value to wheat bureau. The former deals with all trade statistics and latter with whole range of agricultural products. The clearing house proposed by conference will cover not only statistics but all other information that may be deemed of value upon the subject of wheat. Discussions throughout conference were vigorous but at all times harmonious and gave undoubted evidence that all exporting countries are seized with gravity of the present situation and seriously desire, by cooperation, to bring about improvement.
