Mr. HOWE:

My understanding is that it means touching the city of Winnipeg.

Mr. MUTCH:

Am I right in understanding that this bill will not change the present jurisdiction of the municipal councils?

Mr. HOWE:

That is correct. If these municipalities decide to come in, each council will have the privilege of appointing one member to the board.

Mr. GARDINER:

Mr. Chairman, part II of this bill was under consideration yesterday, and I asked the committee to rise and report progress in order that we might check back further. I realized from the discussion that we were more or less at cross purposes because of statements which had been made with regard to what is contained in other acts.

I have since had those acts checked. This bill as it is now before the committee is for the purpose of repealing all parts of the Inspection and Sale Act which have been covered by other legislation. I found on further investigation that these sections with regard to salt are fully covered in the Food and Drugs Act and the Feeding Stuffs Act, and that there was no necessity for these sections to be retained in the present act.

The proposal now is to remove sections 13, 14, 15, 16 and 17 from the present bill, and pass the bill without Part II in it. That will require some further amendments in Part III afterwards. But I suggest that part

II be dropped from the bill.

Mr. PELLETIER:

In clause 13 of part II mention is made of every sort of container and package. Why could not salt blocks be included in that designation?

Motion agreed to.

Mr. GARDINER:

It will be necessary to amend section 19 to read:

Every person who violates any provision of Part II of this act shall, for the first offence, be liable, on summary conviction, to a penalty not exceeding twenty-five dollars, and for each subsequent offence to a penalty not exceeding fifty dollars.

And it will become new section 14.

Amendment agreed to. Section as amended agreed to. On section 18-Manner of determining a bushel.


LIB

Mr. GARDINER:

Regarding this section

there was a question raised yesterday by the hon. member for Swift Current (Mr. Both-well). We changed the wording above the list of articles, and the question was raised whether any offence could be proven with the wording we put in yesterday. I had that checked up and I am informed that the point taken by the hon. member for Swift Current was well taken. I suggest that the new section 13 in place of section 18 shall read:

In contracts for the sale and delivery of any of the undermentioned articles the legal weights per bushel shall be as follows:
