He said Canadian farm produc- tion had been declining since. and suggested that it would im- prove if tha government gave the farmers some inducement.-- GARDENER'S CHARGE Mr. Gardiner indicated that the current shortage of beef supplies in Canadian butcher shops was caused by the action of packing companies in announcing they would pay lower prices for cattle, thus discouraging marketings. WHEAT PRICES Mr. Gardiner said there was noth- ing new in the fact that United States wheat prices were higher than those in Causes. That con- dition had existed since ths out- break of war. Nevertheless. Canada in 1942 had had her biggest wheat cror> in Tears. Mr. Gardiner said the "most im- portar.t phase" of the Question was tha; the reason for the present price level was an effort to conform with a policy advocated by western farm organizations- Thai; policy was to have stabilized prices for farm products and was the arst opportunity to achieve that- policy. The government had. been dis- cussing with tier traditional wheat Prance. Hoi- land. Belgium and pos- sibility of reaching agreements which would keep that stabilized price.

WHT M> CEILINGS Mr. Gardiner said fie was "quite prepared" to take some of the re- sponsibility for the lack of price ceilings on live animals- He said he took the position that it would be unfair to the farmers to put a ceiling at that level- Cattle prices had been at nine cents a pound and now were at 12 or 13 cents a pound and more. But who would say that the 12 or 13 cents was the proper level when retail prices were at their present rates. Discussing butter, he said that butter production during the last three years had averaged pounds more, than previous years. It j was not production that was down but ccnsumption that was up. Ee- cause consumption was high, con- i trols were needed. Gardiner said it was far more important to establish a price for wheat for possiblv a five-year period than to accept a bushel now and 85 cents a few vears hence. M. J. Coldweil, said his party agreed that price stabili- 1 zation was desirable. Farmers did not want a high speculative price and a low price a lew years from now. However. Mr. Coldweil said there were things in Mr. Bracken's mo- tton which he could support.
