James Garfield Gardiner (Minister of Agriculture)

Liberal

Mr. GARDINER:

Mr. Speaker, the general purpose of the bill is to provide for amendments to the Agricultural Pests Control Act which twelve years of experience in its administration would indicate are necessary for its further successful operation. It is a complete going over of the act; I think all the matters referred to in the bill can be much better explained in committee than at this time.
Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.

Topic:   AGRICULTURAL PESTS
Subtopic:   AMENDMENT OF ACT TO CHANGE TITLE AND REVISE CERTAIN OF ITS PROVISIONS
