John Archibald Maharg

Progressive

Air. MAHARG:

Does the minister not
think that that is a very unfair principle? It does not apply to other products of the farm, for example, all kinds of grain and stock. In such cases the inspection fee is a flat rate, and I understand the inspectors are paid a fixed salary. If there is any shortage the Government makes good the deficit, and if there should be a surplus it stands to the Government's credit. I think the change proposed will work a hardship and prevent an. inspection from *being had where it is really wanted.

Topic:   QUESTIONS.
