Mr. WEIR (Melfort):
is that the procedure is to read in the amendments as we come to them clause by clause. I have stated their general effect; it is clarification of the principle. For example, I have an amendment to make clearer-at least there are people who feel this is done by the amendment-the relation that exists between the local board and any power it may have to use funds from the consolidated revenue fund. We also make clearer the fact that pooling is covered in the bill. I had thought that was included under the scheme submitted because no limitation was put on that scheme, that is that representative growers may submit a plan in their scheme asking that a poll be held. That I naturally thought would have been one of the first things under certain conditions that the minister, whether provincial or federal, would be asked for, to decide whether it was sufficiently representative. Another matter that is cleared up is that the organized producers can market their products where they decide, when they decide, in what manner they decide, through what agency they decide and also the means by which the
marketing of their products will be done, that is whether it will be on a pooling basis and whether there will be an initial payment or otherwise.
