Mr. J. F. REID:

I wish to draw the hon. minister's attention to subsection 2, which reads:
(2) No package containing any article subject to inspection 'under tihis Act shall be marked with any label, brand or mark which falsely represents the quantity or weight or contents of such package.
In the West we get a very large quantity of canned tomatoes, and, as far as I know, they come very largely if not altogether from somewhere in Ontario. I do not believe we get any from Prince Edward Island. I have not noticed the stamp on the brand, but we certainly get a large quantity of water and a very small quan-

tity of tomatoes in these cans. I hope this measure will apply to canned tomatoes.

Topic:   MEAT AND CANNED FOODS ACT AMENDMENT.
