§ 26. Mr. D. GRENFELL
asked the Minister of Agriculture the present prices of wheat, barley, and oats paid to farmers in the United States of America and the prices paid to Canadian farmers for the same cereals?
§ Sir J. GILMOUR
The estimated prices received by producers in the United States for wheat, barley, and oats in April last, the latest month for which this information is available, were 43.1 cents, 37.1 cents, and 22.8 cents per bushel, respectively. At the rate of exchange then current these prices would be equivalent to 4s. 3d., 4s. 7d., and 4s. 3d. per cwt., respectively. I regret that I have no comparable figures in respect of Canada.
