Mr. FISHER.

I wish to amend this section. It will be remembered that the hon. member for South Simcoe (Mr. Lennox) and
others, thought the clause went further than the intention as declared by me and as desired by the committee. I submitted that question to the Department of Justice, and they suggested certain changes which, I think, meet the view of those who objected, and certainly cause the section to express more clearly what I desire. The section as I propose to amend it will read :
Any purchaser of seeds with respect to which he has reason to suspect or believe that any provision of this Act has been violated, or any person charged with the enforcement of this Act at his request may take a sample from the seeds and forward it to such person-
And so on as in the section already printed. That removes any doubt as to who may take this sample of seeds, and puts the section in the form which, I think, we practically all agree it ought to have.

Topic:   INSPECTION AND SALE OF SEEDS.
