Evidently, I have not made myself understood. What I have said does not apply to the purchaser-he takes a sample from his own lot of seed. But I call the attention of the Minister of Agriculture and of the Minister of Justice (Mr. Fitzpatrick) to the fact that, under section i0, any person charged with the enforcement of the Act may enter premises and take samples from any sack and so on, for

wliich sample the owner shall be paid at the current value of the seed. I do not see why if you pay in one case, you should not pay in the other. The conditions are exactly similar. With regard to the person who purchases the seed, of course there is no necessity ; but when you come to deal with the person going in and taking samples under section 11, he should be placed on the same basis as the person charged with the enforcement of the Act under section 10.
