The hon. gentleman confirms what I said a few minutes ago, that in so far as the Department of Agriculture is con-
cerned the inspectors were taking every precaution to see that no potatoes left Canada except in proper condition. When Mr. O'Halloran. the Deputy Minister, brought this to my attention on Wednesday or Thursday of last week, I instructed him to send an inspector to Boston, to examine the potatoes thoroughly and make an official report. I do not see that I could have done other than that. At all events I gave instructions to do everything possible, to have them examined again thoroughly by an independent inspector and to make a report accordingly.
