asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he is aware that the removal of the embargo on Canadian cattle would be of great benefit to the people in this country, as the wages of the workers are constantly being reduced, considering the number of unemployed persons in the country; and whether he will reconsider his decision on this question and put the recommendations of the Royal Commission into operation at once by removing the embargo?
I have been asked to reply. The answer is in the negative. My right hon. Friend does not agree that the removal of the embargo would be of great benefit to the people of this country, or that it would contribute to the solution of the unemployment problem.
