Mr. FISHER.

From my understanding of the wording of the clause, I think it is clear that the sample would be taken from the seeds purchased, and would be done by the inspector at the request of the purchaser. I move to amend section 11 so that it should read as follows, after striking out the first four lines.
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 said seeds and forward it to such person as the Governor in Council appoints as an official seed analyst, to examine and report upon any seed submitted for analysis under the provisions of this Act.
