BUCHANAN M.PJSKSA60yi FLOUR MILLS, FARM LABORANOINCOMEIAX ' (Spanlal to The RnraM) OTtAWA, April 8.-W. A. Buchanan, M. P. for Lethbridge, questioned the roTAmment recently on a number of important. questions: The que�-tlops and answers as given in haneard are as follows; Small Flour Mills Mr. Buchanan: 1. Is, the report correct that most f the small flour mills in the country are closed down on account of the market being limited to the local market? 2. Are the small mills suffering from the set price of flour, not belne able to compete agatnst the large toills? 3. Is there a tax imposed upon flour shipped to the Orient? If so, ^vhy? i. Is there any intention of removing this tas? j 5. Is the government aware that the Oriental market is about the only export market for flour arailable at the present? 6. If so, why is that market not nconraged ? Sir George Foster: 1. It is not correct to say that a greater number of small flour mills in the country are closed down than in normal times on account of the market being limited. Whether it is Sue to that or not it is difficult to ay. 3. The gorenusent ha� no information on which to base sn answer gen erally applicable. 3. No. 4. Answered by No. s. 8. The government is not aware that the Oriental market Is about the only export market for flour available at present. Its information would lead to a contrary opinion. C. Practically answered by 5, but in no way is the market In the East discouraged."

Is any rffort being made to ob tain farm labor to meet the needs tor spring >rork? i. W there a scarcity of such labor at the present time? Hon.iMr. Metj^en: 1. The Dominion Provincial, Employment Service is endeavoring to secure the necessarj' farm labor to meet the needs for spring work, and already more than 500 placements are being made on fermi weekly, - The Employment Service reports 504 unplaced applicants in the agricultural group on March 6, 1920, and 951 un� filled vacancies; 611 applicants for farm labor were reforrcid to vacancies during the week eliding March G, and 5S0 placements were made, of which 405 were made in the three prairie pfoTinces. A conference of representatives of the Dominion and Provincial Ehnploy-ment Services was held at Calgary, March S, 9 and 10, and the question of securing an adequate supply ,of farm labor was discussed. There was general agreement that It would be Impossible to indicate the farm labor requirements with any degree of accuracy for some weeks' time, as the farmers are waiting until the spring rs more advanced before registering their orders. In as far as possible, however, the situation Us being anticipated. Numbers of'men are nov>- being released by the lumbering companies in Northern Manitoba and Saskatchewan and by the mining conipaj.\ies la the Crow's Nest Pass, and it was thought an effort should be made to divert them directly to employment on farms. Temporary employment offices have been accordingly opened In Manitoba and Saskatchewan for that purpose, and the opening of one � or two temporary officos in the Crow's Nest Pass Is under consideration. As soon as the workers are released from the mii^s and camps, efforts will be made to register them at the temporary offices and to send each man on reduced transportation to a farm Job. 2. There if every possibility that the demand lor farm labor will be satisfied.
