Hon. W. R. MOTHERWELL (Minister of Agriculture) moved for leave to introduce Bill No. 51, to regulate the sale and inspection of root vegetables.
He said: The purpose of the bill is to
consolidate the root vegetables legislation of 1922 and such amendments thereto as may have been enacted since that date. No new principle is involved, the main departure being a provision for the establishment of an advisory board whose duty it will be to advise the minister of any new grades that may be required or of any modifications of old ones that may suggest themselves from time to time.
Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.
