Mr. SUTHERLAND:

I hear some one say, " Oh, no." No member of the Government can inform us what constitutes oleomargarine and yet they tell us it is wholesome. How do they know it is?

Mr. SUTHERLAND:

One thing is certain, and that is that it has kept down the price of butter. Hon. gentlemen say it is to help the poor. Yes; the poor may use some of it inadvertently, but it will do them more injury than good. We have a Minister of Health in this country. Why does he not analyse this commodity and let us know whether it is really wholesome? Now, I am not going to take up more time, as the hour is late, but just so long as this unfair competition prevails, so long will I oppose this legislation. I would advise the Government if they want to establish the industry permanently to put it on a fair basis in comparison with other legitimate industries. Let them remove the preference which it has over the old established industry. Do not attempt, as the Minister of Agriculture stated in Toronto at a live stock meeting, to make the dairy cow compete with the packing companies; and that is what you are doing when you permit all this material to come in at a preference over everything else.

Resolution reported, read the second time and concurred in.

Mr. Motherwell thereupon moved for leave to introduce Bill No. 194 to amend the Oleomargarine Act, 1919.

Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.

Mr. SUTHERLAND:

Before the bill

is read the second time the House ought to have an opportunity of studying its contents. I really think the second reading should be deferred.

Mr. MACKENZIE KING:

The bill is an exact replica of the resolution, but if the hon. member feels that time should be given for its perusal, the Government will not press the matter.

The matter is an important one and should not be disposed of lightly. It is much more objectionable than formerly.
