John Dowsley Reid (Minister of Customs)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. REID:

I understand that the Department of Agriculture has inspectors at all the ports, watching shipments very closely. If there is anything wrong with the potatoes, the inspectors do not allow them , to go out of the country. Our inspectors think that the American authorities were not justified in condemning that shipment of potatoes to Boston. Every precaution is taken by the department to see that nothing is shipped unless in first-class condition.
