Mr. BRIDGES:

By way of explanation I might say that this bill is composed of only two sections. The first section is to amend the Meat and Canned Foods Act so that it will no longer be compulsory for dealers to have cans of fish or shellfish labelled with the name of the place and/or province where the same are packed. The present requirement causes unnecessary hardship to assemblers who pack or buy a number of products in more than one province, in which case labels have to be made for each type of product and for

each province where it was packed. The amendment will make this no longer necessary. I might also say that the present requirement is now unnecessary, as under the regulations all cans are required to be embossed with the registered mark or number of the canneiy in which they are packed.

The second section of the bill substitutes "fish or shellfish" for the word "lobster". This change will provide statutory authority for the establishment of standards of quality and grades for canned fish or shellfish in addition to lobster if the need for such is established to the satisfaction of the governor in council.

Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.
