Right Hon. J. G. GARDINER (Minister of Agriculture) moved for leave to introduce Bill No. 8 to amend the Inspesction and Sale Act, 1938.
He said: Mr. Speaker, through this bill it is proposed to continue the regulations respecting the grade standards, grading and labelling of flax fibre and tow, which have been in effect during the past five years. This bill has the unanimous support of the flax fibre industry in Canada, which realizes that the grading of their products must continue if the industry is to survive. These regulations were brought in under the War Measures Act during the war, and it is intended to continue them.
