MARKETING ACT AMENDMENT


Hon. ROBERT WEIR (Minister of Agriculture) moved for leave to introduce Bill No. 117, to amend the Natural Products Marketing Act, 1934. He said: Mr. Speaker, the purpose of the bill is to make four amendments to the Natural Products Marketing Act. The first amendment is to change the definition of the expression "natural product" so that it will include pulp and paper, and other forest products. The second amendment is to provide for a system of providing loans to local boards in their early stage of operation before funds are available. The third is to make provision for 'the equalization of returns between two or more closely related products, and the fourth has to do with expediting proof of origin of a product. Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.


SECOND NARROWS BRIDGE


Right Hon. R. B. BENNETT (for the Minister of Marine) moved for leave to ihtroduce Bill No. 118, respecting the bridge across the Second Narrows of Burrard inlet in the province of British Columbia. He said: I am asking for leave to introduce the bill, on behalf of the Minister of Marine (Mr. Duranleau). This bill has to do with certain legal difficulties which arose in connection with the original bridge, and it is desirable to relieve those responsible for the new structure from certain obligations which, apparently, might attach. Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.
