Mr. FISHER.

I would suggest to my hon. friend (Mr. S. Sharpe) that it would be better to make clause 4 at line 25 read: And such agent shall be subject to the same penalties and have the same responsibility as a manufacturer under the terms of this Act.

The minister said that any one who offered the article for sale would by that act become an agent, the vendor would become an agent.

Mr TEMPLEMAN.

I would think that in clause 15 'every person' includes the manufacturer and agent.

Then the grocer will have to have an analysis of every sample he sells?

Mr. FISHER.

I would like to have a

lawyer's opinion as to whether the words in section 4 'for all purposes of this Act ' would include the responsibility upon the

agent. .

I think the words mean he would really take the place in Canada of a manufacturer.

There seems to be a great diversity in the language of the sections creating the different departments, and one would think it desirable to have them as uniform as possible.

I do not see how we can have uniformity without recasting the other statutes.

The statute creating the department of Secretary of State uses these words:-'and the Secretary of State shall have the management and control of the department.' Was there any reason for omitting these words here.

I wonder why the words were omitted, but it does not make much difference.
