Mr. LENNOX.

That covers one point very well indeed. But there is another point that, probably, has been lost sight of. The minister will notice that, under section 10, where the official charged with the enforcement of the Act may take samples, there is a provision for payment; and it was urged, when we dere discussing section 11, that there should be similar provision here. That was mentioned when the matter first came up, but, probably, was not adverted to when we subsequently discussed this section. As regards the question of the purchaser taking a sample, the amendment seems to completely overcome the difficulty. But, as regards the person engaged in the enforcement of the Act, there is no provision that he should be entitled to take a sample only upon paying for it. I think that principle should be embodied here, as it has been in section 10.
