Robert Weir (Minister of Agriculture)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. WEIR (Melfort):

In the reorganization of this branch a saving of something like $300,000 has been made chiefly by combining six branches into three and consolidating the services so that officials have a freer hand to do work which is not so closely defined as hitherto has been the case. There has been practically no reduction of service except in connection with cow testing, which is different from R.O.P. testing. The

provinces agreed that they should undertake cow testing, which gave us an opportunity to make further efforts in connection with R.O.P. testing. We have had many comments to the effect that this reorganization has improved the services given.
