2. The conditions governing federal aid to fair associations may be briefly stated as follows:
Fair associations whose shows are open in all classes to the whole of Canada, and which have paid out in the utility classes of live stock and poultry at their last preceding show the sum of $5,000 or over, will be given a grant equal to 50 per cent of the actual amount paid out, the maximum grant to any show not to exceed the sum of $5,000.
Fair boards, when making application to the Live Stock Branch for this grant, must forward a certified and properly subscribed statement of the auditor's report of all prize money paid out at the last show in the classes previously referred to; as also a copy of the proposed prize list for the succeeding year. For the purposes of this grant, the prize list must be approved by the Live Stock Commissioner. All pure bred live stock exhibited at shows which receive the benefit of this grant must be registered, in the name of the exhibitor, in the Canadian National Live Stock Records. In all questions of policy or matters of dispute the decision of the Live Stock Commissioner shall be final.
