Hon. ROBERT WEIR (Minister of Agriculture) moved for leave to introduce Bill No. 40, to amend the Live Stock and Live Stock Products Act.
He said: The changes to be made by this bill are not very important. Certain changes in definition are being made in order to comply with the modern practices of the trade. Another change is in connection with the control of chick hatcheries by any province wishing to have such control. Section 8, subsection 5 is being amended by the substitution of the word "thirty" for the word "sixty." The principle of the act is not being changed in any way.
Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.
